The primary goal of the Personal and Professional Development (Learn, Grow, Lead) Training provided by 21st Century Leaders, is the intrapersonal and interpersonal development and improvement of the persons in the class. This program will not focus on strategic matters, such as budget, staffing, planning, incident command, but will focus on all things relative to the participant’s relationships – with themselves and with others.
Program components include:
|Time||The program is delivered in 17 sessions over the period of 20 weeks.|
|Sessions and Structure||The program will contain 16 sessions, which will each include writing assignments, self-reflection, feedback and a multiple searches on the web for the student to identify examples of course concepts. Each session will focus on a particular set of self-improvement tools; additionally as several sessions will focus on self-assessments using the Ellis Rational Emotive Behavior model.Our class will be 100% distance learning. In addition it will also be asynchronous in that we will not have any synchronous (real time) activities. Essentially you will have seven days to do your work and each session will start at midnight each Monday.|
|Goals||The goal is to have you all do some learning and application of the skills and knowledge that will allow you to increase your Emotional Intelligence (EQi). There will be papers to write, and self-reflection to be done.Enhance the emotional intelligence (EQi) of the participant.

|Things you will do…||
There will be a one (1) EQi assessment completed during the class – at the beginning of the program;
|Emotional Intelligence||Emotional Intelligence is defined as…a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.|
The Albert Ellis Rational Emotive Behavior model will be used by the participant as a tool, to be processed at least once each session, to reflect on at least one outcome that was less than optimal during the session and provide an opportunity for the participant to change their response to the activating event that will cause the outcome to be more optimal in the future. This model is the de facto change tool used in cognitive behavior change.
|Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits||Over the past 25 years Covey’s 7 Habits have proven to be a set of constructs that enhance an individual’s personal growth from being dependent to independent to the ultimate goal of becoming interdependent. The constructs are as follows:
Independence or Self-Mastery
The First Three Habits surround moving from dependence to independence (i.e., self-mastery):
Take initiative in life by realizing that your decisions (and how they align with life’s principles) are the primary determining factor for effectiveness in your life. Take responsibility for your choices and the consequences that follow.
Self-discover and clarify your deeply important character values and life goals. Envision the ideal characteristics for each of your various roles and relationships in life. Create a mission statement.
Prioritize, plan, and execute your week’s tasks based on importance rather than urgency. Evaluate whether your efforts exemplify your desired character values, propel you toward goals, and enrich the roles and relationships that were elaborated in Habit 2.
The next three have to do with Interdependence (i.e., working with others):
Genuinely strive for mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships. Value and respect people by understanding a “win” for all is ultimately a better long-term resolution than if only one person in the situation had gotten his way.
Use empathic listening to be genuinely influenced by a person, which compels them to reciprocate the listening and take an open mind to being influenced by you. This creates an atmosphere of caring, and positive problem solving.
Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals no one person could have done alone.
The Last habit relates to self-rejuvenation:
Balance and renew your resources, energy, and health to create a sustainable, long-term, effective lifestyle. It primarily emphasizes exercise for physical renewal, prayer (meditation, yoga, etc.) and good reading for mental renewal. It also mentions service to society for spiritual renewal.
