Certificate in Whole Leader Development
What would your life look like if it were more whole? If you are currently in a leadership role or one day would like to be in one, earn a certificate in Whole Leader Development. You will become more purposeful, supported, productive, confident, patient, effective, and creative throughout the process. This not only equips you to lead well, but courageously and sacrificially, for your sake and for the sake of those you lead.
This self-paced certificate program includes The WiLD Toolkit (a $299 value), a set of 10 sequential developmental tools and personalized feedback reports that provide a comprehensive and intentional development plan. This process will bring intentionality around your next steps forward and increase your adaptive performance in real time. Unlike any other developmental process, the tools are based on four decades of research on the developmental journey of leaders. The WiLD Toolkit encourages vulnerability but doesn’t force it, and provides an integrative framework you to think in a more comprehensive and whole way about your learning and development. The tools provide deep insight and guidance in helping you become a better version of yourself.
The certificate program includes The WiLD Toolkit (one year's access), accompanying videos, a workbook, reflection, and invitations to optional live virtual discussions. The program will take 12 hours. The certificate is in recognition of completion of the following tools:
- The WiLD Profile | Developmentally Ready
- Calling and Purpose Inventory | Called and Purposeful
- Purposeful Goals Assessment | Progressing on Purpose
- Leading Under Pressure Inventory | Present Under Pressure
- Transformational Experiences Audit | Learning from Experience
- Skills and Knowledge Inventory | Skilled and Competent
- Motivational Learning Inventory | Motivated to Learn
- People Investment Plan | Invested in Others
- Strategic Network Audit and Guide | Strategically Surrounded
- The WiLD Plan | Planning for the Future
Developed by WiLD Leaders for The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
This certificate program is for CEOs, Executive Leadership, Managers, Project Leads, and anyone who is preparing for a leadership role in the future.
