The Outset Leadership Series for Technology Professionals is a rigorous, broadly framed, performanceoriented professional development program. It is designed for today’s working Technology professionals, teaching core leadership skills in the context of the technical workplace.
Technology professionals often advance their careers with technical or administrative skills. But they may find themselves at a disadvantage when the work includes a “leadership component” that they are not prepared for.
The Outset Leadership Series for Technology Professionals is designed to close that gap. It offers technology professionals a unique opportunity to place their leadership performance on an equal footing with their technical skills.
The Outset Leadership Series for Technology Professionals is accredited by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) for 32 PDU/CDU.

A blend of live training methods
We use a blend of live on-site and live online training to achieve maximum impact while conforming to the schedules of working professionals.
Because of our emphasis on real-world performance, this program starts by teaching self-awareness and
inner management. The goal is to help students understand and manage their “inner landscape”, so they can stay centered and be professional under stress. This part of the program is generally done in a day of live, on-site training.
From there, we shift to a series of live, online modules. Each module is a fast-paced combination of exercises, team activities, role play, games, coaching, and dialogue to help students master a principle, skill, or technique. After completing these modules, students take a final exam.
We then cap off the program with a final day of live, on-site training, where we review the final exam, teach various “closing” and “continuous improvement” techniques, and issue certificates.
In order to maximize the real world impact of this training:
Students complete an online “Self-Assessment Survey” at the outset, in order to honestly evaluate strengths and weaknesses, and to consider those areas they want to target for improvement
We ask that each student bring in a current project or other current work responsibilities to work on during the workshop
Each of our six live online modules has a one-hour homework assignment that focuses on the student’s current leadership role
Students will be certified via an online final exam, which includes a Student Action Plan to apply what they have learned to a work-related goal
