We are excited to launch the fourth cohort of a unique–and popular– learning, benchmarking, and networking opportunity.

The Leading Excellence & Achievement Program (LEAP) is an invitation-only, one-year executive leadership development program, centered on learning, benchmarking, and networking with other leaders on the journey to excellence. The foundation of the experience is based on the Baldrige Framework, though some participants may come from organizations just wanting to learn more about its use and value.   The program is a partnership between the Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence and the Performance Excellence Network.

“LEAP has been a great experience to deepen my understanding of the Baldrige Criteria. We’ve had great opportunities to learn from national Baldrige winners, our fellow cohort members, and our LEAP coaches. I highly recommend LEAP to anyone considering the program.”

There are many benefits of participation:

  • Experience accelerated (and applied) leadership development, exploring how the principles of excellence have been implemented in a diverse set of organizations – businesses, healthcare, education, nonprofits, and public sector agencies.
  • Learn insights and best practices from high performing local and national organizations, many of which have received top Awards from PEN, WCPE, and the Baldrige Program
  • Explore how best practices in leadership, planning, customer focus, measurement, workforce engagement, and operational effectiveness can translate to your organization, helping you to address strategic challenges and/or improve organizational outcomes.
