We offer dynamic leadership training programs to suit a variety of groups, including manager-level through more senior leaders, women leaders, emerging leaders, and of course, virtual colleagues. We adapt the content, based on level and needs of our clients.
Participants in the Arden Leadership Academy gain significant, sustained learnings that continue to resonate throughout their careers. They gain a deep self-awareness of their strengths, areas of opportunity, and behavioral patterns, as well as develop a personalized leadership action plan for ongoing learning. They refine their communication skills and learn to work more productively in a team setting, as well as learn to align their own goals with the greater goals of the organization, leading to greater empowerment and career satisfaction.
The Leadership Academy delivers a host of benefits for the greater organization, including stronger leadership skills and engagement, improved emotional intelligence, a better ability to handle difficult conversations and conflict, and new skills for coaching and developing their direct reports. Over the long term, organizations report sustained learning with tangible results, as well as significant positive cultural impact that echoes throughout the company.
The Arden Leadership Academy Advantage
Our Leadership Academy program offers a level of unparalleled efficacy, thanks to our unique structure of pairing one-on-one coaching with group training. The DiSC assessment helps them understand their communication style and learn to flex for greater effectiveness in their tasks and relationships. During the course of the program, participants partner with our expert coaches to set goals. We also leverage the power of group learning, as participants take part in interactive trainings to explore customized leadership topics and practice their new skills. In between sessions, participants have individual time with their coach to help integrate learnings and create a plan to apply new skills. This powerful combination of group training and one-on-one coaching helps participants quickly put their newfound competencies into action, making the Arden Leadership Academy a uniquely effective program.

Our Proven Curriculum
The Arden Leadership Academy begins with the individual, exploring what it means to be a manager or leader; defining individual style and exploring how to shift for greater facility with more people and situations; interacting more effectively with others, including emotional intelligence; communication, difficult conversations, and managing conflict; and developing the skills and capabilities of direct reports.
We offer exceptional on-site or virtual, half-day modules from our information-packed curriculum based on the goals of your organization. In these modules, participants are more than just individual participants; they form a cohort sharing leadership experiences, skills, and a new leadership vocabulary. The resulting camaraderie helps spread an outstanding leadership culture throughout your organization.
This proven tool helps participants develop awareness of their behavioral differences to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication. Our expert coaches provide individual guidance during the program to help participants apply the module learnings to their unique circumstances.
