Executive Forum helps organizations turn the “what” of leadership into “how” for their leaders. Our programs are practical, experiential, and time-phased—resulting in greater retention and tangible ROI. Our Leadership Pathway provides organizations a systematic approach to building leaders at every level.
At Executive Forum, we believe learning is enhanced when individuals are able to apply new skills to current real-world situations. Our leadership development offerings combine specific behaviors with a framework for using these new skills, giving participants the opportunity to become more comfortable in their roles and more confident in their new behavior.
Leadership is about facilitating understanding—whether it’s organizational goals and objectives, technical and regulatory processes, or how individual roles fit into the organization. A leader’s job is to help others understand and connect in order to engage. Great leaders are connectors.
Our approach to leadership emphasizes this connection through collaboration, self-awareness, and taking responsibility for the direction and development of others. By promoting successful professional and personal growth, agility, inclusion, and resilience, individual leaders are prepared for the future needs of the organization.
We believe leadership development is a strategic choice—whether the organizational focus is team building, individual skills, or executive coaching. It’s a commitment to the future that balances the need for action with the necessity for taking time to learn.
For over 30 years, we’ve worked with organizations throughout the Northwest to build strong leaders, manage change more effectively, and construct a more productive, engaged workforce. We assess requirements, evaluate solutions, and construct plans to develop leaders with the skills needed to motivate teams, discover new opportunities, and support sustainable success.
