higher Education Leadership Programs

Would your university benefit from offering a leadership development program that elevates participants to their highest level of excellence? Look no further than the Delta Leadership’s Six Domains of Leadership Model. Thousands of leaders and graduate students have successfully incorporated this model into their personal and organizational leadership styles.

Based on extensive research and practical applications, developed by two professors at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University, the Six Domains of Leadership Model is a proven foundation that leads to behavioral changes, resulting in the development of highly effective and productive leaders. Through the use of a 360° assessment survey based on the model, participants will explore specific leadership qualities to develop or improve skills that move them toward exemplary leadership.

Benefits of the Six Domains Leadership Program

❖ Gain insight into individual leadership styles
❖ Develop common language of leadership qualities
❖ Elevate performance of organizational leaders at every level
❖ Create a culture of leadership that drives team productivity and positive outcomes

One to Four-day Leadership Development Programs

Choose from three tiers to meet your executive education needs and budget

Let Delta Leadership help you design a Leadership Development Program that best fits your needs and that offers a common framework and language of leadership to your participants.

Delta will provide certification and resource materials to enable your faculty to facilitate the program or provide an experienced Delta Leadership facilitator to lead participants through each domain of the Six Domains of Leadership.

“Receiving coaching is a valuable necessity for any leader of any level. The brilliance of the Six Domains of Leadership program is that you can hone your development to a particular area of leadership. Combining the survey demographics with an experienced Delta Leadership coach will improve your overall leadership capability and is the best investment for yourself and your company.

I loved the flexibility of the program. It made easy to implement across our organization. Our leaders could work on their own unique development areas, but as an organization we could work together within a common framework and language of leadership.”

  • Two virtual coaching sessions with Delta certified executive coaches will provide a debrief and interpret the results of the final survey report. The coaching sessions guide participants in developing a personal action plan that will expand skill levels and illustrate how changing one’s behavior or actions can elevate one’s level of leadership development to the highest level of excellence.

All of the content above will be included in the four-day program, but a more intensive look at the Six Domains model and how it leads to both personal and organizational productivity and success will provide a sound foundation for implementation.

Interactive team activities will be part of each day’s program.

The capstone project for this expanded program is the development of an organizational change initiative that can be implemented in the workplace using the tools and new skills identified during the program.
