The electrical distribution industry looks radically different than it did 20 years ago, and it will look radically different in the next decade. The leaders in your organization are going to have to be able to face these changes head on or risk the survival of your businesses. NAED's new leadership development program will help your current and future leaders:
Do you want to learn more about yourself and your strengths/opportunities as a leader?
Are you open to feedback, willing to consider new ideas and willing to practice new skills?
Do you currently lead in any capacity (a team, branch, project?) Is there an area of the business that you are directly responsible for?
Are you willing to commit to the 12-month timeline, including traveling to both face to face meetings and all virtual sessions?
Are you willing to commit 60-80 hours during the program to complete all readings, activities, and assignments?
Are you willing to try new things and be proactive for class activities like assessments, case studies, peer advisors, and the capstone project?
Is there a leader in your organization who supports your participation in this program?
Strong leadership is not about having one right way of communicating, behaving, or working with others. It is about taking your own unique strengths and leveraging them in a way that works for you and your organization. This cannot be done without some structure. After interviews with members of NAED and research from trusted institutions around the United States, NAED partnered with Dale Carnegie to develop five leadership competencies which are critical for electrical distribution leaders to embrace, embody, and exemplify to be successful in the future. These competencies are embedded into every component of this leadership program.
