Leadership Excellence

Preparing Tomorrow’s Business Leaders Today

Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions Corporate Training is collaborating with leading business experts to offer an advanced leadership development program to prepare tomorrow’s business leaders today.


Leadership Excellence is a cohort of seasoned leaders who want to continue to invest in their leadership acumen. Participants will take a deep dive into eight leadership topics with time dedicated to collaborate and develop action items to implement in their workplace.

Benefits of this cohort:

  • Provides advanced training in leadership subject areas allowing the participants to take away concepts, ideas, and skills to implement in their workplace.
  • Class size is limited to 20 participants with no more than three representatives per company, providing a highly interactive cohort model that encourages participants to learn from each other, share ideas, and develop new relationships.
  • Application of the concepts can improve the health of teams and the effectiveness of organizations.

What’s New This Year?

This year’s Leadership Excellence cohort will have a decisive focus on three core leadership competencies: adaptability, communication, and resiliency. Pulling from leadership and business experts, and with a lens of the unique impact these current times have on business, participants will learn concepts and practical tools to be adaptable and resilient leaders with impeccable communication skills.

Who should attend:

  • Alumni of Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions’ Leadership Institute
