THE POWER OF A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE

Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership

people sitting at round table talking together

Successful leaders understand the importance of intentional leadership. Due to our complex social and political climates, leaders are currently learning rapidly through trial and error. To build on this learning, you are invited to join our Leadership Community of Practice (CoP) where you and other leaders can share your experience and wisdom with one another.

A CoP is a group of people who share a concern, a set of problems, or a passion about a topic, and who deepen their knowledge and expertise (practice) by interacting on an ongoing basis (CDC).

The purpose of this CoP is to explore the application of Kouzes and Posner’s (K & P) five practices of exemplary leadership during this challenging time. RIHEL will provide a forum to briefly review each leadership practice and then facilitate a discussion where you can share your leadership experiences, highlight successes, discuss challenges, and talk about solutions. Each session will focus on one-two of the five practices (Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart). This CoP will emphasize solutions and action over the course of three 90-minute sessions.

In this CoP:

  • Participants will practice behaviors necessary to apply the five practices
  • Participants will share examples of the value of using the five practices
  • Participants will become aware of practices that support them in successfully leading teams virtually
  • Participants will share examples of the challenges of using the five practices
  • Participants will share lessons learned from applying the five practices

You can learn more about the five practices in The Leadership Challenge (6th ed.) by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner (available online, at many bookstores, and some libraries.)

Workshop Format:

Given the COVID-19 pandemic and current public health safety concerns, this workshop is only being offered via Zoom videoconference at this time. This CoP will include a minimum of 8 participants with a maximum of 24, and is delivered over three 90-minute sessions. This CoP is highly interactive.

This workshop will not be recorded and participants should be prepared to attend the session in person.

Registration Fee: $125

This two-session workshop explores fundamental coaching skills and practices that can be used to foster new thinking and insights, improve communications, build intrinsic motivation, and produce meaningful outcomes.

The workshop emphasizes three core coaching skills that heavily influence communication and relationship efficacy. The workshop also introduces the “GEM” coaching model, including options for how to frame and phrase questions powerfully to elicit new awareness, discovery and pathways for action and results. Workshop participants have the opportunity to observe a coaching demonstration, practice using coaching skills and the “GEM” coaching model, and receive constructive peer feedback to build and strengthen their coaching competencies.

As a result of these workshop sessions:

  • Participants can describe how coaching supports personal and professional potential

This workshop applies the Triangle of Success as a model for preparing and engaging in effective “high stakes” powerful conversations.

As a result of these workshop sessions:

  • Participants can describe the importance of intention for having a powerful conversation
  • Participants can describe the three elements of the triangle of success
  • Participants are prepared to use the triangle of success to plan future important conversations

COLLABORATION IN ACTION

about a dozen people gathered around a table talking

When your leadership is grounded in the principles of collaboration you are better able to facilitate your team’s efforts to achieve goals. Successful collaborations have leaders who stay open and observant to how their team is functioning and regularly reflect on how best to support a growth mindset. This is designed as a two session refresher workshop for RIHEL Alumni who want to grow their skills to facilitate collaborations. Session 1 (2 hours) lays the groundwork for all participants (regardless of RIHEL class), by reviewing the elements of effective collaboration (inclusion, diversity, willingness to hold personal agendas aside) and team functioning (focus, climate and communication). This session will also review considerations for facilitating effective collaborations and tools available to gain insight to team functioning. The Action Assignment will ask participants to use 1 or more of the tools re-introduced in session 1 (Team Assessment tool, SCARF Assessment, Engagement Strategies) and Session 2 – A week later (60 min) – will provide an opportunity for facilitated reflection and reinforced learning in small and large groups discussions.

As a result of these workshop sessions:

  • Participants have a working understanding of the important elements of collaboration and team functioning
  • Participants can describe approaches to facilitate effective collaborations
  • Participants will gain experience using one or more of the tools: Team Assessment, Individual SCARF Assessment, Strategies for Engagement
  • Participants will develop capacity for reflection and integration to support team growth

Registration Fee: $125

Given the COVID-19 pandemic and current public health safety concerns, this workshop is only being offered via Zoom videoconference at this time. The workshop is limited to 25 participants and is delivered over two sessions. Workshops sessions will NOT be recorded.

THE EMOTIONALLY EFFECTIVE LEADER

colorful logo

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is proven to be a key indicator of human performance and development. People higher in EI communicate effectively, form strong relationships, and create powerful coping strategies. As for leaders, those with higher EI skills are more likely to demonstrate personal integrity, manage their impulses while still taking risks, be empathetic without losing sight of their own emotional needs, be an effective communicator, easily build rapport and inspire others. EI is a cornerstone of a leader’s ability to build and sustain an engaged, high performing team.

You may have a formal or informal leadership position; you may be a relatively new or a very seasoned leader. The question is, do you want to be a more effective leader? This workshop is for anyone who is interested in developing their leadership capacity. Alternating between group activities and individual reflective exercises, this engaging two-session workshop encourages leaders to focus on their leadership strengths and areas they can develop further.

As a component of this workshop, you will complete a personal EQ-i 2.0 emotional intelligence assessment and receive a personalized EQ-i 2.0 Leadership Report. This report examines your assessment results through the four key dimensions of leadership (Authenticity, Coaching, Insight, and Innovation) and provides a comparison against top leaders as a benchmark. The report also contains insights on the possible implications of the assessment results, and which skills have the highest potential of becoming leadership derailers. Personalized strategies for development are provided for each emotional intelligence skillset, with the goal of supporting your pursuit and attainment of your true leadership potential.

As a result of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Describe the role of emotional intelligence in effective leadership
  • Identify key areas of leadership in relation to emotional intelligence
  • Identify the key elements of the EQ-i 2.0 Leadership Report
  • Describe your emotional intelligence strengths and areas with opportunity for growth
  • Describe the four areas of leadership potential (authenticity, insight, innovation, and coaching)
  • Identify ways to maximize your leadership potential
  • Identify how aspects of emotional intelligence can lead to derailing behaviors
  • Apply what you’ve learned in this workshop through your personal EQ-i 2.0 learning plan

Workshop Format:

Given the COVID-19 pandemic and current public health safety concerns, this workshop is only being offered via Zoom videoconference at this time. The workshop is limited to 24 participants and is delivered over two partial-day sessions. This workshop is highly interactive, including breakout groups and group discussion.

This workshop will not be recorded and participants should be prepared to attend the session in person.

Registration Fee: $399

With this framework and with participant’s insight, we will explore the emerging opportunities and challenges for leading teams in virtual or hybrid settings.
  2. Strategies – In the Strategies component, we will introduce/review several practices intended to strengthen and apply ways of being that add value to any situation. One of the practices is the “TAMIC” model of being: Transparent, Assured, Mindful, Influential and Calm. Remember, the focus here is for you to develop ways to apply these strategies/practices on an every-day basis.

Advanced Leadership Training Program (ALTP)

The PURPOSE of the Advanced Leadership Training Program (ALTP) is to develop advanced knowledge and skills to lead intentionally in an increasingly complex and diverse context.

The ALTP is designed to build the capacity of the individual participants, and to create an interdisciplinary network of leaders who are dedicated to the health and environment of our region. The program includes some 45 health and environment professionals in the Rocky Mountain region each year. As of May 2020, RIHEL has completed 21 ALTP classes and graduated over 900 fellows.

Admission into the ALTP is through a competitive application process. Accepted applicants begin the year-long program in July and graduate in May.

 

  •   ALTP offers a powerfully diverse and interactive leadership curriculum that takes you on an impactful, emotional, and life-changing adventure!

  •   Not only do the ALTP instructors and staff provide a holistic leadership approach, but they provide a welcoming and safe environment that encourages vulnerability and honesty.

  •   …and, an added bonus is that you end up making life-long connections with people throughout the country!

  •   Leadership isn’t always about achieving BIG results but small successes are just as important as big ones.

  •   The curriculum is exceptional and has been transformative. The ALTP has helped me significantly move the ball forward on my own leadership skills in every respect.

  •   RIHEL gives you permission and confidence to say “I think this is the right thing to do, regardless of how popular I might be on the issue.” When you’re a public official you have to do that a lot.

    –Jill Ryan, Executive Director, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
  •   [ALTP] made me realize I can be an effective leader, and I don’t need to be in a formal manager/leader role at work to practice leadership. I can apply leadership principles to my personal life, too. And, I can share the tools I’ve learned to others so they can apply it at work and/or at home.

  •   I’ve been thru 2-3 leadership programs throughout my career but being in ALTP was a humbling experience. It was the right amount of challenge for me at this point in my career and appropriate to my work as a leader in my organization and as leader of a team… I understand a lot more about leadership now than I did before; I have a framework and language for what I value in leadership and the kind of leadership I want to practice.

  •   Celebrating my successes daily changes my relationship with my to do list, my job. By ending each day celebrating something that went well, I leave on a positive note. I no longer leave worrying about my to do list or feeling frustrated. As a result, I’m happy to go back to work the next day to have another success.

  •   I think about leadership as more of a proactive practice than I did before, rather than something that is handed to you or that comes with a position. I’ve always been a natural leader but I think I was stuck in terms of growth as a leader. ALTP provided me with concrete tools to use and assignments to help me practice them.

Proven Results

The doctoral dissertation of Linda Olson (Olson, Linda. Leadership Development for Public Health and Environment, unpublished dissertation, University of Denver, 2005) examines the leadership changes in 67 graduates for four years (1999-2002) of the Advanced Leadership Development Program. Olson's dissertation concluded: "RIHEL as a training intervention can be credited significantly with the changes in leadership practices of alumni ... . It gave them self-awareness, a leadership framework, and skills to improve in multiple leadership opportunities. ... Leadership training had a positive impact overall in the RIHEL alumni leaders' development." (pages 200-201).

Curriculum

The Advanced Leadership Training Program (ALTP) includes the five elements found in the most effective leadership development programs:

1. Conceptual Model: A conceptual model is theory that forms the framework for learning, in this case for learning about leadership. The ALTP uses two conceptual models of leadership:
    five people standing in circle with arms linked in the middle
  • Leadership is Behavior. Leadership is behavior, not a personality trait or a position on an organizational chart. RIHEL uses Kouzes and Posner’s behavioral model of leadership, the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership: Model the way, Inspire a shared vision, Challenge the process, Enable others to act, and Encourage the heart.

  • Collaborative Leadership. Collaboration is the most effective known approach to solving complex problems. Leaders understand the importance of collaboration, communication, and networking with interdisciplinary professionals to address today’s complex health and environment challenges.

2. Action Learning Experience: ALTP participants plan and implement a project as a learning laboratory for the leadership skills that they need to try out, practice or refine. The projects require passion and creativity, bring value to the community or workplace, highlight collaboration, and encourage the participants to think through sustainability after the project is completed. See examples of past projects.

3. Coaching: Leaders are often asked for advice: Good leaders know when to give information or advice and when to be a “strategic thinking partner” to uncover the wisdom inside their peers and proteges. This is known as coaching. The ALTP develops coaching skills to allow participants to tap into their own wisdom and solutions and to practice coaching others. Participants are also paired with a RIHEL peer coach (a RIHEL leadership program alumnus) for regular coaching conversations during the ALTP.

4. 360-Degree Feedback and Other Assessments: ALTP participants take the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) to provide quantitative information about the frequency with which they exhibit specific leadership behaviors. While many similar evaluation tools exist, the LPI-360 has been extensively studied and validated, and corresponds to Kouzes and Posner’s Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership conceptual model used in the ALTP. Participants debrief their LPI reports, and plan actions to help increase the practices they want to magnify.
Throughout the program, participants complete additional assessments to help identify intrinsic traits and behaviors that influence their leadership presence.

5. Reflection: Reflection is the hallmark of a leader, and ALTP faculty model reflection in the delivery of the program, facilitate group reflection during training events, and assign reflection questions between training events.

Transcending the Unknown: Becoming more resilient in the face of challenges and changes

Transcending the Unknown: Becoming more resilient in the face of challenges and changes

Presented by Kari Knutson
Professional Speaker, Therapist, Storyteller

This engaging and timely presentation focuses on multiple topics related to how the world has changed since March of 2020. In light of these changes, we have had to refocus our priorities and overcome numerous obstacles in our personal and professional lives. The recurring theme of this presentation is shifting perspectives, cultivating courage, and harnessing the power of compassion. We will discuss the role of stress and how to identify and mitigate it, as well as positive coping mechanisms so that we can show up fully present in our roles, ready to engage thoughtfully and effectively with the people we serve. This presentation will also explore the ways in which we can adapt to new situations by shifting our perspectives and understanding the cycle of change. We will also discuss the role of courage in consciously choosing how we show up for ourselves and others as well as the concept of compassion and how we can use compassion to enhance our connections, expand our influence, and help us heal. Participants will leave with practical and actionable ideas that they can start using immediately.

The accord Tool for Successful Negotiations, Influential Conversations (and Great Meetings)

The accord Tool for Successful Negotiations, Influential Conversations (and Great Meetings)

Presented by Sara ‘Zora’ Boas
Founding Director, Boas Partners

The same deep structure and process can be used to achieve influential conversations, successful negotiations, and great meetings. Many of us use this structure unconsciously when we are at our best. However, when we skip essential steps, we undermine our own role as positive change-makers. In this highly interactive session, Sara ‘Zora’ Boas will teach us the six phases of her accord tool for transformation. Based on modelling what outstanding leaders and negotiators actually do, accord is used by community and business leaders around the world to engage people, take clear decisions together, gain real commitment, and generate powerful collaborative action. Participants will be encouraged to explore how they can apply accord in their own daily lives, to create and sustain health and wellbeing for people and the environment, even more effectively. By taking part, you will learn to:

  • Prepare for meetings/negotiations/conversations with your own and your partners’ true needs in mind
  • Create an atmosphere of trust, emotional safety, and productive cooperation
  • Establish clear expectations and a process for achieving shared goals
  • Drill down from sharing and developing ideas to agreeing on a specific plan
  • Ensure that each individual shares responsibility and commits to taking action
  • Keep up the momentum of implementation and continuous improvement

The “Exhausted Majority”

Hidden Tribes, Beliefs, and Navigating Our Tense Political Climate

Most Americans say this is the most politically divided we have been in our lifetimes. What is driving us apart, how can we better understand these differences, and — most importantly — how can we move beyond them?

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVE

Workshop participants will leave with the capacity to empathize with Americans of different political perspectives, and to feel equipped to proactively mitigate polarization as individuals, as leaders, and as organizations.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Workshop participants will:
  1. Gain a much deeper understanding of the underlying value sets and belief systems animating the current period of intense polarization in the US.
  2. Learn a Core Beliefs framework and the Hidden Tribes typology that explain why the country feels so divided and identify the frames for constructive engagement with new audiences.
  3. Apply tenets of the Core Beliefs framework in role-play to practice how to navigate polarization to more effectively connect with a broader range of stakeholders and audiences.
