How does the Leadership Institute work?

This MNLA learning experience cultivates leadership skills in your key staff by incorporating highly interactive exercises, discussions, lecture-style learning, and project-based activities and sessions. Using these multiple learning methods creates a rich adult-learning environment and increases takeaways for each person. The sessions focus on personal development through key soft skill topics. All the soft skills are taught this way:

  1. The concepts are taught first.
  2. Then, the facilitators zero in on exercises that make the student aware of who they are and how they affect others.
  3. Industry leaders are brought in to share their own personal development stories and company best practices.
  4. Tools and tips are always offered that the students take away and can use immediately back at the work place. Some are even required "homework" between sessions.

The Green Industry Leadership Institute will prepare your employee to take a stronger and more confident leadership role in your company. 

What is the potential return on investment?

The program includes tangible takeaways for the sponsoring business. This is found in the students engaging in improving processes and strategies, and more specifically via their project, which is meant to improve their company in a meaningful way. Note that these are projects that affect the entire company, not small individual projects that only help the student get their own tasks done. The process of choosing and developing the project includes several rounds of feedback from the facilitator and fellow students. Students will also develop a network of peer advisors to engage with as they grow and advance in their career.
