"The From the Laboratory to Leadership program was very much a self-discovery journey for me. I was amazed to find out how people could be different in their personalities and work styles. The instructor shared useful techniques for the success of individuals and corporations. The program helped me understand how a successful corporation works and to implement the knowledge in my daily work. I strongly recommend the program for people who want to learn about goal setting, leveraging personal strengths, priority management, coaching, delegation and interviewing."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE FORMAT AND DURATION OF THE PROGRAM?
At The Leadership Edge, we use learning and development approaches that have been supported by research to achieve the most successful participant outcomes. We instill increased confidence and competence in the participants and the successful implementation of tools and skills in the workplace. To achieve this, our program format is based on three premises; learning over time, spaced repetition, and accountability. The From The Laboratory To Leadership Program, is delivered over four (4) sessions, with each full day session spaced two (2) weeks apart. This enables participants the opportunity to learn a tremendous amount of content at a pace that is not overwhelming, gives them the opportunity to implement the tools and concepts in the workplace, and provides the opportunity for participants to discuss their successes and challenges as they are held accountable in their next session. While this format is our most utilized delivery method, we realize that, on occasion, our clients require an alternative delivery format. In these cases we will partner with you to design a delivery approach that supports your needs without sacrificing tremendous results. Although the program is four (4) sessions, the support of The Leadership Edge and your program facilitator never ends as the result of our free, life-time support.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A CLASS?
We understand that sometimes things will occur that might prevent you from attending all of the classes. No problem, we provide several resources to ensure you stay on track. Each participant is paired with a peer coach in the class, to help support each other in your learning. You may call your coach to discuss the content that was covered and gain an understanding of the expectations before attending the next session. In addition, your facilitator is also always available to support your continued success in the program. You may also make up a session by attending any future public session through one of our association partners at no cost (if space is available).
