CASE STUDY

Transformational Leadership for Women:

A Scaled Programmatic Approach Large organizations, in both the Public and Private Sector, have approached Learning Tree with the need to target high performing women, identified as potential leaders, to develop better representation within the management corps of senior-level job classifications.

SOLUTION:

From our public course on this topic (Course 3472), Learning Tree developed a customizable program that can be scaled and tailored to an organization’s unique environments. This unique program includes a 3-day training event, supplemented with many additional professional development engagements including, networking events and mentoring and can be best described as a Transformational Leadership for Women Seminar. Key to ensuring ongoing success after this seminar, Learning Tree developed a post-event ‘Sustainability Strategy’ not only to maintain momentum but help ensure that their development goals would be supported by the other women in the program, their managers, and the broader organizational culture. The term ‘seminar’ in this case is being used to distinguish this from a workshop. The concept is based on a more self-directed, roundtable approach, where self-directed learning with the instructor serving as a ‘facilitator/coach’ along with content presentation. Focusing on issues, challenges, and opportunities that women deal with specifically, has proven invaluable on several levels.. Many of the women who go through the seminar are able to share common themes, explore creative and collaborative ways to address challenges and develop relationships that will continue long after the event.

Unique Program Features: •L  eaders will join in the event during the breaks/lunches to discuss their journey’s and allow seminar attendees to learn from their experiences and ask questions. •T  his seminar can be delivered to remote teams leveraging Learning Tree’s award-winning AnyWare® platform that allows participants to participate in the same type of collaborative discussions as if they were in a traditional classroom together. •L  earning Tree hosts an evening “networking event” with the attendees, and organizational leadership to help practice the tools/behaviors they learn in the course with facilitator support and encouragement.

Key Program Goals/Competencies: Women within this program are being prepared for even higher management and leadership roles and responsibilities.
