Foundations & Building Blocks for Emerging Leaders
One of our most popular programs, Cornerstone hands newly-minted team leads, supervisors, forepersons, managers, or anyone responsible for the performance of others the essential building blocks of good management. Cornerstone is an extensive 15-month learning system comprised of 30 bi-monthly volumes that introduce participants to the fundamentals they will require for a lifetime of leadership.
Each of Cornerstone's 30 volumes runs approximately two hours in length and is delivered two weeks prior to the next. In the interim weeks, participants link their learning to their daily responsibilities by applying principles, tools, and skills in real work, alone and in collaboration with direct reports. This immediate "infield reinforcement" (supported by participants' own managers) allows for safe experimentation, constant reinforcement, and ultimately positive habituation. Because it's much easier to learn new habits than unlearn old ones, we believe Cornerstone is table stakes for early leaders.
