Levels and Certification
The ILDP is arranged on three levels. These levels reflect the typical tiers of leadership within most companies. We suggest that companies register their leaders to participate in one level at a time. Once they are ready for the next tier within the organization, they can come back and take the next level.
Description of modules
Level 1: SupervisoryA supervisory role is often the entry level for young leaders within the organization. In this phase, it is particularly important to develop communication skills that reflect this new role. Modules at this level therefore equip participants with tools that aim to empower employees.
Level 2: ManagementManagers typically hold more formal responsibility than those in supervisory roles. Consequently, the need for interpersonal and team leadership skills is even greater as managers are responsible both for their teams’ success and team members’ job satisfaction. Both are central to employees’ personal development, which helps firms with employee retention. Therefore, the modules in this level build on the foundation provided in Level 1. Participants will learn to combine the tools for empowering employees with those that are necessary to communicate effectively in more formal management situations.
Level 3: ExecutiveThose in executive positions are responsible in various ways for the efficient running of the business. Because their responsibilities lie on a broader scale than those of managers, the skills they need must also be effective on a company-wide level. In addition to communication skills, executives require strategic skills to facilitate change, resolve conflict, and transform organizational culture. They must do so in an ethical and sustainable manner. Modules at this level therefore focus exclusively on these areas to ensure that participants develop the skills to succeed at the highest management level and drive company success.
