Energy Workforce Executive Leadership Program Imparts Skills, Strategies for Career Development

Advanced Business Development Course

All tracks of the Council’s 2021 Executive Leadership Program convened in virtual sessions over the past two weeks to continue work in the structured year-long program designed to develop leadership skills candidates can use in future roles.

The Executive Leadership Program offers three different paths that allow to participants to focus on specific aspects of leadership. The tracks include:

  • Advanced Business Development, which helps participants develop the skills, behaviors and confidence to address client needs and develop long-term relationships.
  • Engaging Leadership, which focuses on identifying strategies to create a collaborative and resilient workplace by helping participants develop stronger communication methods and explore the difference between being a leader and a boss.
  • Strategic & Branded Executive, which offers participants tools to enhance their executive brand and presence, and equips them with processes and skills to guide an organization to its full potential.

In addition to content presentations and discussions led by Envision Group’s Pat Lipovski, participants broke into small groups to engage in deeper conversation of specific topics.

Along with group virtual events, participants have met with executive coaches, mentors from the Council Board and Advisory Board, and accountability partners. The online format enabled more than 115 individuals from around the world to attend, including participants in the Engaging Leadership Middle East and Permian cohorts.

The Emerging Executives Committee designed the format to help attendees identify career development and leadership behaviors that work for them, and brainstorm ways to continue development post-graduation, including opportunities to develop others. The questions also provide the Council with feedback to tailor programming for future cohorts.

Registration is open for the 2022 Executive Leadership Program.
