ELP introduces powerful new concepts of leadership effectiveness, using questionnaire-generated feedback, small team exercises, case discussions, self-assessment instruments, brief lectures, videos, and supplemental readings. The program content thoroughly addresses core leadership competencies such as assessing the organizational environment, improving worker motivation, setting performance expectations, managing inter-personal and inter-cultural communications, establishing successful team leadership, strategic decision-making, and flawless ethical practices. Some programs in the ELP series are offered at, and designed by, the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina.
