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° leadership assessment survey based on the model, participants explore specific leadership qualities to develop or improve skills that move them toward exemplary leadership.

Tier One

One-day Leadership Development Program (Onsite or Virtual)

A trained faculty member or Delta facilitator leads this one-day executive education leadership development program with a focus on the Six Domains of Leadership Model, including guidelines for the incorporation of the model into the culture of an organization, team, or individual leadership style. Leadership resources and interactive exercises are integral components of this dynamic one-day seminar.

Tier TWO

Three-day Custom-tailored Executive Education Leadership Development Program

A trained faculty member or Delta facilitator leads this interactive three-day leadership development program with a focus on each of the domains of the Six Domains of Leadership. Additional emphasis is on identified challenges such as leading change, leading a diverse workforce, employee recruitment and retention.

Prior to the program, attendees participate in the Six Domains of Leadership 360° Survey (SDLS), a research-based tool developed from the Model. The survey provides feedback from direct reports, supervisors, peers and other raters who have observed the leadership qualities of the participants.

Two virtual private coaching sessions with Delta certified executive coaches provide a debrief and interpretation of the results of the final survey report. The coaching sessions guide participants in developing a personal action plan that 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.

Tier Three

Four-day Custom-tailored Leadership Development Program

All of the content above is 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 provides a sound foundation for implementation. Collaborating with a certified Delta leadership coach, each participant develops a personal leadership action plan to maximize the impact of leadership performance. Interactive team activities are an integral part of each day’s session.

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.
