Grinnell Leadership Announces Four Remaining Leadership JumpStartĀ® Session Dates in 2014

Local Leadership and Organizational Development Consulting Firm Helps Program Participants Awaken and Focus Hidden Leadership Potential

Chapel Hill, NC, July 11, 2014 --( Grinnell Leadership, a consulting firm specializing in leadership and organizational development services, has announced the dates for the four remaining Leadership JumpStart® program sessions in 2014, held at Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington, N.C. A maximum of 12 businessmen and women from around the world attend each session, which packs six months of highly effective leadership coaching into four days. These participants represent a wide range of experience levels and industries, which contributes to many well-rounded, engaging discussions and exercises.

Leadership JumpStart® is designed to change the way leaders view their roles. Through investment in the program, participants can expect to gain insight into human motivation for “reading people” in order to create conditions to better influence others, build “conscious curiosity” to broaden self-awareness for identifying leadership blind spots, and learn a powerful technique to find the courage to communicate and lead through difficult situations when others will not.

In addition, participants will develop a precisely targeted, behaviorally specific and accountable action plan to change key outcomes of their leadership capabilities upon returning to the workplace. The success of these time-tested methods is clear – out of more than 1,500 past attendees, 99 percent rated Leadership JumpStart® as the most effective leadership course they have ever taken.

The remaining dates for the program this year are as follows (all start on Tuesday and end on Friday):

· Sept. 9-12
· Oct. 7-10
· Nov. 11-14
· Dec. 9-12

“Through Leadership JumpStart®, we teach participants that true leadership is not what they think it is. Rather, it is the adaptive force within a human organization that creates conditions to foster personal and professional achievement,” said John Grinnell, president and CEO of Grinnell Leadership. “Regardless of title, years of experience or scope of responsibility, this program helps individuals awaken their previously hidden leadership potential. Session after session, I am truly amazed by the progress that each individual is capable of making in his or her leadership journey in four days.”

“Grinnell is not just about leadership. It’s about personal growth and development. All of the people I’ve sent to Grinnell have said that it not only changed how they see themselves professionally, but also personally,” said Kevin Sowers, RN, MSN, president of Duke University Medical Center and past Leadership JumpStart program participant. “The self-awareness that comes from Grinnell makes people conscious of how behaviors and thoughts begin to shape and mold leadership styles. Your greatest strengths can become your greatest weaknesses if you’re not aware.”

“There are moments in your life that you can pinpoint because they changed something,” said Greg Vetter, founder and CEO of Tessemae’s All Natural and winner of Inc. magazine’s 35 Under 35 Reader’s Choice. You left an experience and realized that your eyes were closed and now they are open. You realized the world you were living in was not the world you thought it was. I left Jumpstart with one of those moments. I am different, my company is different, my family is different, and it’s all for the better. Every executive at my company is scheduled to go. End of story."
