In today’s world of remarkable social and technological change, increasing health and economic uncertainties, cultural transformations and polarizing attitudes towards governance, the need for genuine and sustainable leadership at all levels of society, and within every community, has never been more clear. For those who recognize that leadership is not a merely a result of one’s title or station in life but rather something more fundamental, we have an extraordinary opportunity for you…
AMPLIFY Clearwater has partnered with 4D Associates International and Learning Optimized – a premier in person and virtual training and coaching collaboration specializing in the design and delivery of sophisticated leadership development programs. This unique interactive training program utilizes evidenced-based models within the social sciences along with proprietary diagnostics, frameworks and methods of delivery that accelerate the personal and professional growth of civic and business leaders allowing them to measurably enhance their individual success and increase the value they bring to their organizations, and within their communities.
4D Associates International and Learning Optimized facilitators have decades of experience drawing upon a range of proven training and coaching techniques that get underneath the surface of performance to redefine genuine leadership as the ultimate outcome of unique mindsets, attitudes and a range of conscientious behaviors that are grounded in the being-ness of partnership with others. Our program’s participants discover that their true capacity for Leadership is not a function of their abilities (strengths and achievements) but rather an expression of their Responsibility… their commitment to transcend comfort and convenience and expand their capacity to truly be in service to others for the common good. We also recognize that actual leadership is not something that can simply be learned by taking courses or reading a stack of books. It requires a disciplined practice with creative methods for continual reinforcement and accountability, which are essential aspects of our program’s curriculum.
We invite you to learn more about how you can take advantage of this unique opportunity for personal discovery, challenge and achievement within a supportive and empowering team environment.
