INPOWERD Leadership Program - Principle-based Leadership


Earl Shockley


The INPOWERD Leadership experience allows high-potential leaders to build emotional awareness, leadership habits, learning agility, and cognitive communication skills. Participants will be stimulated by innovative leadership philosophy and challenged by the creation of a personal leadership philosophy.

The Program maximizes relationship and culture development, team productivity, change management strategies, while driving innovation and strategic thinking.

Using hands-on exercises and dynamic discussions, participants learn core and adaptive leadership theories and best practices to help navigate complex challenges and capitalize on emerging opportunities.

While most leadership programs are analytical in nature, our principle-based methods are founded on experienced driven lessons learned using a variety of innovative educational formats that have been proven to be stimulating and effective. They are interactive and provide a dynamic, conducive, and enjoyable environment for adult learning to take place.

A series of real-life exercises and activities encourages participation and keeps the program interesting and involving. All participation is rewarded in an atmosphere of acceptance and with respect for people's experience and background.


At INPOWERD our leadership programs are tailored to suit your specific needs and to address various organizational and personnel goals and objectives. We believe that our program is as much a personal development program as a Leadership program. This is because, ultimately, an organization can only provide exceptional leadership if it is staffed by people with exceptional attitudes, beliefs and understanding of themselves and others.

Program content includes one-on-one mentorship/coaching for assigned individuals. Participants will be asked to contribute their perspective to the ongoing discussions. The program requires a commitment of time and focused energy. Participants will take away an experience, not just content.

The following sessions are included as the core leadership curriculum for the program:


1.    Introduction to Program
