Leadership Programs

Our leadership learning program features 6-8 courses designed to bring out the potential leader within new managers, to enhance the leadership skills of existing leaders, and to inspire all leaders to be their best self in the service of the organization.

We offer three leadership programs, designed and customized for the emerging leader, developed leader or advanced leader.

The Batiste Leadership leader development process consists of three sequential learning programs. Values-based leadership is threaded through all learning programs, as participants develop and refine their leadership skills and personal leadership philosophy.

  • Emerging Leaders

    This program is for entry level leaders or managers who need to learn the fundamentals of leadership. It is primarily directed at emerging or recently designated leaders who are transitioning from buddy to boss. The program helps new leaders start on a lifelong leadership journey that is grounded in values, seeks continual improvement, and develops others so they reach their potential.

  • Developed Leaders

    For this second learning program, mid-level leaders are expected to take things up a notch. There is more of a focus here on leading a team, and on what it takes to build a high-performing team (psychological safety is introduced). Leaders build their emotional intelligence, and learn how to inspire others with a vision.

  • Advanced Leaders

    The final leadership training program is for senior leaders who have a high-degree of influence in the organization, and have already attended the other two programs (or similar training). It builds on the learning in the other two programs, but is much more focused on how to build, nurture and protect a high performing culture by aligning team members around the organization’s mission, intent, and values. This time, instead of personally embracing change, the program focuses on how to lead others through change.


The responsibility of leadership is not to come up with all of the ideas, but to create an environment where great ideas thrive.
