"No institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under a leadership composed of average human beings."
Peter Drucker

Examples of Leadership Development Initiatives

Facilitated a custom designed leadership development program for the top 2700 leaders of the largest healthcare provider in the DC-metro region. This program is centered on Bob Rosen's Grounded® Leader concept. The value proposition is simple: "who you are" drives "what you do" resulting in "how you perform." Our team expertly guided participants through multi-day, interactive sessions which yield an understanding of the six dimensions of healthy leadership-Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Vocational and Spiritual-and how each plays a role in accomplishing team performance goals and the overall organizational outcomes. Throughout the program, our facilitators utilized leading methodologies, tools, and techniques to focus on exploring the participants' journey to becoming change leaders; innovation, creativity and evaluating mindsets; core leadership capabilities of communications & mentoring; and acknowledging & managing unconscious bias. Opportunity Knocks facilitators have assisted managers across the organization to be equipped to demonstrate the qualities of being a healthy leader and to be examples for their staff and team members.
