Providing practical strategies for becoming a better leader, this bestselling book includes interactive elements to help students apply leadership concepts to their own lives. MOR Associates offers a proven approach to building leaders that combines feedback, individual development goals, one-on-one coaching, workshop instruction, and applied learning. Though the great majority of participants are managers and directors, organizations occasionally enroll senior leaders or high potential individual contributors. An example of a multi-organization MOR Leadership Program would be the MOR IT Leaders Program. Besides being tuned to the needs of senior leaders, the Advanced Leaders Program is distinguished by always being a multi-organization, cross-organizational program. The Emerging Leaders Program is geared toward individual contributors, technical leads, and front line managers who don't have direct reports, or, if they do, only one or two.
The MOR leadership program experience is designed to be a potent force for building leadership communities in sponsoring organizations.
Three interactive components in every chapter - self-assessment questionnaires, observational exercises, and reflection and action worksheets - get readers actively involved in applying leadership concepts to their own lives.

The book examines one quality of leadership per chapter, enabling students to apply concepts and skills to their leadership development. Thousands of leaders from public, private, and non-profit organizations have realized significant, lasting benefits from our programs, and their organizations have benefited from the improved ability of these leaders to deliver results. For that to happen, people need to understand what leadership is and why it matters, they need to be able to recognize good leadership when they see it, and they need to experience exercising leadership for themselves. As the table indicates, the program is delivered at individual organizations or at multiple organizations that choose to collaborate by sending small groups to the program. Unlike the MOR Leadership Program, in which participants work on case studies based on past events, case studies in the advanced program are always based on real problems that the participants are working on. It provides the same overview of leadership that our other programs do, but it focuses a bit less on higher level leadership competencies, like strategic thinking and public communications, and focuses more on foundational skills, such as facilitating meetings and influencing without authority.
Participants leave with a shared understanding of what leadership means, they acquire shared leadership skills, and they develop lasting personal and professional connections. Northousea€™s Introduction to Leadership: Concepts and Practice focuses on providing readers with practical strategies for becoming better leaders.
Grounded in leadership theory, yet accessible and reader-friendly, this book covers a fundamental aspect of leadership in each chapter and illustrates its application in real leadership situations. It providesself-assessment questionnaires, observational exercises, and reflection and action worksheetsin each chapter.

Another notable difference is that participating organizations typically enroll entire teams, whereas participants enrolled in our other programs are often the sole representatives of their work groups. The spirit of collaboration that is unleashed leaves participants hungering for more, and they often use their newly expanded networks to advance the work of the organization.
