A recent Leadership Challenge asked triads to read an article
on the importance of recognizing different communication styles
within the workplace and then implement one of the strategies
within the teams they manage the next time they faced a difficult
interaction with a colleague or external stakeholder. After putting
the communication strategy into practice, the triads reconvened to
discuss their findings, then posted a summary of their discussion
to the program’s website to share with the larger group.
In addition to providing a safe space online for leaders to discuss
their experiences, the information posted to the site becomes
a barometer for evaluating the program impact on organizational
culture and gauging the uptake and relevance of the Leadership
Facilitators developed an awards and point-based system to
maintain engagement and facilitate the seamless and successful
integration of a gamification concept into the Sustainable
Leadership Program. Predetermined scoring criteria is applied for
each Leadership Challenge and scores are calculated for responses
posted by the triads. Points are then tracked and the top scoring
triads are listed on the program’s website at the end of each sixmonth
phase. As recognition for earning top scores, triads receive
ribbons with their name and program title.
From the outset, the vision for the program was to reach well
beyond training delivery approaches used in the past and to
look across multiple industries at best practices from both
training & development
