Today, confusion — not a smooth, steady course — often reigns in organizations and businesses. In fact, says Stephen R. Covey, we’re now in a “permanent whitewater world.” Not only are good management skills important, but effective leadership is also vital. Through this course, the 4 Roles of a Leader, participants receive the tools, processes and context to lead successfully, even in times of turbulent change.

What will you learn

This course consists of four sessions conducted one afternoon or evening What you will learn: Using materials created by Franklin Covey, you will learn to apply the four roles of leadership to the workplace.

  • Understanding the role of pathfinding, aligning, empowering and modeling
  • Apply the four roles to a learner-selected project/initiative
  • Create Win-Win agreements and leadership action plans
  • Understand the value of the co-missioning process


Four – half-day sessions of classroom instruction followed by the 4 Roles of a Leader CD which provides participants with a toolkit to further understand and apply the four roles to the real world of work.

Purpose of this course:

Leadership is a state of mind, not a job description. Anyone at any level of the organization can apply these four principles to any given situation and produce outstanding results. This course is an excellent follow-on to the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
