About the Program

We know people leave managers, not jobs. Leadership Transformed: Executive Leadership Coaching gives West Michigan leaders the confidence to lead authentically to motivate those around them and maximize talent retention.

What is Authentic Leadership? Authentic leaders don’t just discover and develop their team’s strengths — they use their own strengths to be relatable, genuine leaders who consistently help others learn and grow.

Leadership Transformed is rooted in strengthening the skills that already exist in our community’s senior leaders. Through the Enneagram assessment, wisdom from guest speakers and connection with peers, leaders will gain clarity of their intrinsic leadership.

What You’ll Gain:

Skills & Know-How to: 

  • Empower your authentic leadership: Take creative risks, share your perspective without fear of consequence, and make valuable contributions.
  • Build an emotionally intelligent team: Where people feel trusted, safe, and secure.
  • Lead with confident vulnerability: Learn to be transparent and model self-reflection for your team.

The Business Case: Leaders who focus on their strengths see improvements in their performance and in that of their employees, including employee engagement, retention, and productivity.

When people apply their strengths, they are:

  • 6x as likely to be engaged in their jobs

  • 3x as likely to report having an excellent quality of life

  • 6x as likely to strongly agree they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day

Chamber leadership programs prioritize creating spaces where diverse perspectives can come together to learn, grow and push our community forward.
