Priority Leadership is a leadership framework of 10 continua, based on research and evidence-based systems, that help to produce the following results:

  • Planning to vision
  • Goals to priorities
  • Policy to targets to opportunity
  • Problem-solving to capacity-building
  • Fear of separation to relationship and teamwork
  • Controlled management to shared leadership
  • Hidden agendas to authentic listening
  • Conformance to performance
  • Tradition to data to reflection
  • Arrival to growth

During this two-day course, lessons from each continuum will be illustrated and used as examples to demonstrate the critical role leadership plays in showing improvement and obtaining results. In addition to covering the continua, the course will include an individual Priority Leadership Assessment and personal action plan, aiming to improve the leadership performance of all participants.
