If your organization had better leadership, what would happen? What would it mean to your customers, employees, investors, and other stakeholders?

In RBL's virtual Leadership Code® Academy, participants are taken on a cohort-based journey where they learn not just the attributes of leaders but also how to build human capability to deliver results that matter to the organization and its stakeholders. Led by Norm Smallwood and other leading experts, the Academy is designed around the 5 domains of the Leadership Code®: (1) Strategist, (2) Executor, (3) Talent Manager (4) Human Capital Developer, and (5) Personal Proficiency.

Over the course of six weeks, participants will learn how to:

  • Build leadership skills that matter to stakeholders and impact business results
  • Increase agility and simplify complexity in the new world of work
  • Develop talent with competence, commitment, and contribution
  • Create the right culture based on stakeholder needs
  • Understand how to navigate organizational, professional, and personal paradoxes

  • You will learn directly from Norm Smallwood, other experts, and your peers how to deliver business results with impact and build human capability as a leader in your organization.
  • The academy is organized to help you develop the critical knowledge, skills, and attributes that are essential for effective leadership.
  • Participants complete 16 learning modules at times that work for them.
  • Modules include videos, reflections, cohort discussions, polls, and additional exercises.
  • In addition to the online materials, participants receive a guide with the relevant slides, models, and tools.
  • Each week participants will come together with their cohort virtually for a consultant-led session.
  • The consultant-led sessions provide a space for RBL consultants and academy participants to discuss applications specific to the participants’ organization and situation.
