Looking to develop your leadership skills AND deepen your understanding of the Baldrige Framework? A few seats remain for the fourth cohort of LEAP (Leading Excellence and Achievement Program), our unique cohort-based offering that takes learning and benchmarking to a new level with access to – and interaction with – other successful leaders, each sharing insights on how to design and lead a journey to excellence using the Baldrige Framework.

Participation in LEAP is a ten-month commitment, which includes the following features:

  • Five full-day learning/benchmarking events, each conducted with a site visit and tour (with a virtual alternative available), hosted by organizations in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Each session will include:
  • A half-day “module” that focuses on insights and best practices from a Baldrige Category (leadership, planning, customer, etc.), with part of the morning learning from the host site, part of the morning spent in roundtable discussion and sharing across the cohort.
  • A “module” that will feature a national Baldrige Award winner, sharing by livestream their insights on the day’s topic.
  • Another half-day “module” that focuses on insights and best practices from a different Baldrige Category (and led by a different organization on the journey to excellence), also includes a presentation and roundtable discussion.
  • Support of a “coach,” who will visit with participants in between sessions to answer questions, support work on the capstone project, and prepare for the next module.

The first session begins in August. Interested in learning more or securing your seat?  Contact us by calling 608-212-6613.
