Signature Leadership Program Participants Address Business Development Tactics

More than 90 participants from 30 different companies reconvened this week for the second quarter seminars of the Energy Workforce & Technology Council’s Executive Leadership Program. Participants in the Engaging & Influential Leader, Advanced Business Development and Strategic & Branded Executive programs came together to discuss and develop leadership skills needed for current and future roles.

The 2023 Executive Leadership Program prepares future leaders for the responsibilities they will face and the qualities they will need as they successfully advance in their organizations.


The Engaging & Influential Leader course focuses on identifying strategies to create a collaborative, resilient workplace. Attendees develop strong communication methods and explore the difference between being a leader and a boss.

The group discussed how to determine who to coach and engage those individuals, developing a growth plan and goal setting.


The Advanced Business Development course helps participants develop the skills, behaviors and confidence to address client needs and develop long-term relationships. The training gives participants a range of business development and sales techniques to adopt a confident consultative and solutions-based approach when selling.

Participants discussed the seven dimensions of business development, personal positioning statements, effective communication and emotional intelligence.


The Strategic & Branded Executive course offers leaders and high-potential executives the tools to enhance their executive brand and presence, and equips leaders with strategic planning tools, processes and skills to guide any size organization to its true potential.

The cohort focused on SWOT analysis, the importance of SWOT’s strategic pillars, goals and objectives, and more.

Participants from each track of the Executive Leadership Program are scheduled to join their counterparts from the other sessions at a quarterly networking event June 13 hosted by the Energy Workforce’s Emerging Executives Committee.
