From their pre-work, they describe the three phases of leadership developmentDiagnose, Plan, and Executeand its two cycles: self-reflection and discussion. > Diagnose and Select: Participants make connections between whats happening in their organizations, the Leadership Imperatives critical for success, and the groups strengths and weaknesses in those Imperatives. They discuss the high payoff of aligning these variables. Learners use a planner to identify initiatives, development goals, and skills/knowledge they need to gain. > Targeting Development: The group discusses examples of three types of high-payoff development opportunitiestraining, job experience, and coaching. They work in teams to identify opportunities that would stretch them outside their comfort zones, and record opportunities for the development goals identified earlier.

After watching a video model, learners practice preparing for and conducting a discussion with their managers to gain support for their development plans. They receive feedback from one another and amend their plans as needed. > ExecutionBridging the Knowing-Doing Gap: After a discussion emphasizing key points about the Execute phase, a quiz helps learners determine how effective they are at execution.

They record these in their planners and identify needed support and measurement methods. > Improving Productivity: o Examining Priorities Learners discuss criteria for determining priorities and use a toll to evaluate and prioritize their current tasks. o Conquering Procrastination Learners discuss why people procrastinate and how this appears to others.
