The Problem Is …..
The problem with most leadership development programs is that they fail to enable and support the participant in successfully implementing the desired behaviors into new habits.
At SharpAlice we’ve solved this problem by designing our program to address two fundamental requirements for affecting lasting personal change:
No person will change until the choice to do so is made. Such a willingness to change requires an openness to see the gap between a person’s current self and their future self. We therefore recommend that each user first work through the Personal Mastery track.
Once someone has chosen to change, a real ability to sustain change is needed in order to successfully navigate the treacherous path to lasting personal change. Our program is therefore designed according to 6 key principles which help participants to successfully adopt the desired behaviors as new habits.
Laying The Foundation For Personal Change
To help set participants up for success, the Personal Mastery track focuses on the following three essential elements of achieving personal mastery, as per the model of Harvard professor Peter Senge:
Define their personal leadership vision & purpose: Help participants truly see themselves as the leaders they want to become and articulate why they want to lead.
Commitment to the truth: Help participants assess and accept the truth about their current reality as well as the gap between their future and current self
Manage the gap: Pre-assess, and if necessary, bolster participants’ stress tolerance for the discomforts of the personal change process to overcome the gap between their current and future self.
