Why the PeopleWorks Leadership Institute?

The PeopleWorks Leadership Institute is a six-month leadership development program designed for both emerging and current people managers. This live, in-person program gives participants an approach to leadership that not only improves their effectiveness today but is also sustainable for their entire professional career. Give us six months and we’ll give you more effective leaders.

We believe the best leaders are confident leaders and confidence comes from education and connections.

Education + Connections = Confidence

Education: This custom-curated curriculum combines timeless principles and the latest research. Leadership is a skill and the first step in skill development is understanding the principles and mindsets necessary to grow.

Connections: One of the most memorable aspects of this learning experience is getting to interact and connect with other professionals. Participants will not only learn from the facilitators but the other participants as well. Interacting with leaders from other organizations will give each participant an opportunity to benchmark and share best practices. Fun will be had, experiences will be shared, and life-long connections will be formed.

The program consists of the following:


  1. Six in-person half-day sessions

  2. Three one-hour virtual group coaching, check-in sessions

  3. Up to two hours of one-on-one coaching

However, if you are eager to develop your leadership skills and improve your personal brand, then look no further because this leadership intensive is for you.
