Leadership Development

Everyone is a leader.  Some of us lead teams, some lead projects or processes, others lead the experience of our customers.  At Exude, we believe in inclusive leadership development that invites all to exercise their leadership abilities.  To do that, we start from a core foundation of four behaviors:

  • Be self-aware
  • Be inclusive
  • Be well
  • Be accountable

Our portfolio of offerings in leadership development are intentionally diverse.  Every organization is different, as is every growth strategy, so to think about an off-the-self, one-size-fits-all approach is not an option.  We have proven core ingredients that we use in our solution that are based on meeting your organization and your learners where they are at.

We believe learning is an experience tied to preparation, education, reflection and application.  For each of our client that looks different but all in, we’re focused on making sure our leadership training programs have the right focus on whatever you’re trying to solve for – upskilling, employee retention, employee engagement, movement, community building – or a combination of all those.

Leadership Development Training

The most basic element of our leadership development library is a 2.5-hour instructor-led leadership training course.  These modules can be conducted 100% virtual, 100% in-person, or blended.  We conduct an intake meeting with key stakeholders to connect our facilitator with the specific opportunity, and then send a short survey to the learners tied to the pre-work for the training.  Those two inputs and the strength of our facilitators is where the magic happens.  For each of these modules we also offer train-the-trainer leadership training programs and content licensing so you can lean on us for content and lean on your own team for delivery.
