The objective of the Leadership Vista Programs is to foster:
 
· Greater mentorship and collaboration among peers and between management levels
 
· Greater leadership diversity
 
· A more appreciative, rewarding, productive and profitable workplace.

The Prima Vista Program

 

The Leadership Vistas Prima Vista program is designed for emerging leaders, including:

  • Supervisors and First-line managers who manage a single function / budget
  • High potential leaders who are on track for a supervisory or management position

Format

With an average chapter size of 16 to 20 members, the Prima Vista program is designed to be an interactive, peer-to-peer mentoring experience combined with educational leadership instruction provided by a professional instructor / executive coach.

The Prima Vista chapter meeting includes:

  • An expert advisor providing education and insights on pre-selected topics that focus on the developmental needs of each member
  • Interactive exercises
  • Round-table peer group discussion
  • Mentorship based on each participant's business experiences
  • Long & short term goal setting
  • Sharing of best practices

Topics

Each monthly chapter meeting focuses on a different topic aimed at building practical leadership skills. Some sessions may include a guest speaker, an assessment or a review of previously assigned homework (reading an article, book or use of a management development tool). The intent of the program is to provide the insights, education and vision needed to effectively manage and lead others, by exploring such topics as:

  • Transitioning from Individual Contributor to Manager
  • Delegating Effectively
  • Managing Up
  • Giving Effective Feedback
  • Communicating Effectively
  • Retaining the Best
  • Dealing with Team Conflict
  • Planning the Budget
  • Understanding Your Strengths
  • The Infinite-Win Manager
  • The Art of Staff Development
  • Managing Your Time

Over time, each Prima Vista chapter will explore many topics, far more than can be covered in a single year. The longer a member participates in the Prima Vista program, the more they will learn and grow as a leader. While the overall intent of the Leadership Vistas program is to enable each participant to develop the leadership skills needed to ascend the corporate ladder, those members who maintain their membership at the Prima Vista level will likely never experience repetition of topics.
