What is LeaderW@RE
LeaderW@RE arose out of a demand for a leadership development approach that emerged from the need to consider development in 4-Directions: Vertical, Horizontal, Oblique, and Time—required, because solutions must be crafted in 4 dimensions to meet VUCA conditions. (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous).
Vertical and Oblique dimensions are critical components of
Dimensional Leadership as is TIME, and understanding these
components creates leverage in LeaderWARE for leaders and
Using what he learned in more than 25 years of Global Professional Coaching, Mike R. Jay became focused on adult development and the leverage that exists for BEHAVIORAL CHANGE.
In the process of developing LeaderW@RE, Mike utilized
adult developmental systems devised by researchers over the past
hundred years, including specifically Michael Commons, Robert
Kegan, Jane Loevinger and Susanne Cook-Greuter, Kurt Fischer, Theo
Dawson, Elliott Jaques, Clare Graves and Don Beck, Lawrence
Kohlberg, and many others who have contributed to the current
state of Adult Development.
Through the coaching of thousands of clients and the training of coaches in more than 45 countries over more than three decades, Mike devised a model of “development in a leadership context” simply “on the other side of complexity.”
LeaderW@RE follows in the path of GENERATI @F-L-O-W and believes that change is best designed and scaffolded from talent, rather than extracted from working on limitations.
Mike’s Holorg Approach realizes that development occurs in the
context, conditions, code, and culture of organizations and thus
using powerful content, and knowledge of “core” individual
attributes, enhances self-awareness through the objectification of
LeaderW@RE is the network of Seven DYNAMICS: Capability, Bias, Style, Level, Role, Values, and System. Taken individually and as a fractal — each containing parts of the whole, the system can be used to both differentiate as well as integrate self-knowledge, as enhancing self-awareness — the key leadership component of VUCA TIME.
What does “getting certified” in LeaderW@RE involve?
- The program consists of a year-long embedded learning experience.
It includes an assessment portfolio carefully selected and
tested for psychoactive elements.
- It includes a “retreat experience” staged at the beginning and end of the program.
One retreat may be attended virtually to limit travel costs
for International Participants.
Retreats are video-taped and recordings made available for
those who pursue the “Certified Track.”
- The LeaderW@RE Program includes 9 Modules, 7 of which contain the essential Core DYNAMICS
The modules are taught virtually online and involve a
“participant-centered” developmental plan.
Learning how to create Individual Developmental Plans using
LeaderWARE is the essential goal.
- Embedded learning creates virtuous learning and reinforces the instructional design.
LeaderW@RE is modeled throughout the process to allow
you as a Certified LeaderW@RE Participant to
- There is a travel, housing, and meal cost associated with one or both (optional) retreats.
