Leadership development is critical to succeed, and In Sync Consulting is offering unique, inclusive, and intensive programs that are specifically designed to help leaders build tangible, realistic solutions that create high‐impact results.
Change is everywhere. Leaders have no other option than to work through uncertainty to deliver results, grow the organization, and grow as individual leaders. Leaders are expected to rise to the challenge as managers as well as members of the organization, but how that happens is not always clear.
The Emerging Leadership Program (ELP) aims to further develop leaders who are ready to tap into their potential and enhance their leadership impact. This program will be both time reflective and experiential, and will grant access to frameworks and tools for mindful thinking, deliberate action, and authentic leadership.
Our vision is to provide a challenging program that provides participants hands‐on experiences that enhance their abilities to manage through uncertain times.
What to Expect
ELP is a 12-13-week program with two meetings per month, one online and one in person. You can expect:
- A unique learning experience rooted in authentic leadership and creating a vision
- Personalized support to internalize learning and translate it into leadership impact
- A demonstrable shift in leadership vision, skills, and behavior
- A network of leaders who are committed to the leadership experience of excellence
Who Should Attend
This program is for leaders who are already in some type of management role and have been identified as key to furthering the organization’s mission.
These leaders are ready to learn to be their best and lead at their best, and want to build on their existing skills and grow their leadership to achieve extraordinary results.
The participants should be considered high-potential employees who have significant responsibility for leading others and consist of Top Managers, Middle Managers, and Team Leaders.
Module 1: Introduction to Leadership
What does it take to become a good leader? How do you effectively manage a team or entire organization? Participants learn that leadership is a process as well as an ability and behavior that influences the process.
Module 2: Introduction to Goal Setting
Participants learn the key to achieving success through the S.M.A.R.T. goal‐setting process, getting more clarity, creating balance, and gaining momentum.
Module 3: The Mask
Through an eye-opening exercise, participants learn to see who they really are and how they’re projecting themselves to others.
Module 4: Creating a Vision
Without a vision, people meander. They make a lot of movement, but little progress. The purpose of this module is to gain greater clarity in a leadership role and to implement and influence change.
Module 5: Resumes
Creating excellent resumes is difficult. Participants get feedback on their current resumes as well as learn to craft new ones that get interviews and showcase their true abilities.
Module 6: Time Management
There is a “sweet spot” where successful people spend the majority of their time. Participants learn the unique process of identifying this target area by analyzing how and where they currently spend their time (at home and work) so they can adjust where needed.
Module 7: Interviews & Resumes Continued
What is the purpose of an interview? Most people don’t know the real purpose, so this module shares teaches participants what they need to know to get the job they want.
Module 8: Value Assessments
The most enriching and rewarding life is one that’s in sync with one’s values. In this module, participants uncover their core values.
Module 9: The Business of Doing Business
Business acumen is critical to effectively moving up to the executive level. In this module, we review the basic requirements for understanding the world of business.
Module 10: Conflict Management
The purpose of this module is to introduce the different styles of conflict management and help participants become aware of their own personal styles, showing them how to adjust when needed.
Module 11: Email Communication
Email is perhaps the most common way we communicate with teams, employees, and supervisors, but it’s a mode of communication many of us have not learned how to use appropriately. In this module, we review tips that lead to successful responses, and actions that create greater overall impact.
Module 12: Setting Priorities
This module is designed to teach a time-tested and proven method for setting priorities and managing time in a high-demand, high-stress environment. Participants learn how to become a master of their own schedule.
Module 13: How to Hold Effective Meetings
From the adaptive leadership theory, we will discuss how to hold space, manage people, and employ effective meeting techniques.
Module 14: Wrap Up
In the final module, participants check in on their goals progress, share lasting impressions, and participate in a closing round table discussion.

Reflect on the learnings and changes that occurred over the past year
“Thank you for providing a program that allows me push my limits, get out of my comfort zone, and appreciate the value of becoming a true leader. This program is an investment worth every penny for the future of this organization.”
“I believe this is an exceptional program in every aspect. It helps us better understand the finer points of leadership, and I truly believe it can help anybody better develop their own leadership skills. In my opinion, one of the most positive elements is how it gets you outside your comfort zone. This course allows you to work on items that need improvement outside the traditional classroom environment, and the group dynamics experienced definitely are a positive in the overall learning experience.”
“We are changing ourselves for the better and pushing ourselves so far beyond our comfort zone every day that not everyone will be willing or able to go to those levels. We are learning to be solid leaders who understand how to lead people and, more importantly, understand ourselves, which gives us a trust and confidence to get through just about any issue we may face. I have learned things in this class and the Emerging Leadership Program I never would’ve known, and I’ve been able to grow more in these last two years than ever in my life.”
“Thank you for believing in me, pushing me, and knowing me more than I do. You know how to connect with my heart and it’s a great feeling. It’s helped me realize I need to listen to myself more. Connecting with my heart, when I do, is satisfying and humbling. I am ready for what’s in store next.”
