Executive Integral Leadership

Look Inward to Move Yourself and the Organization Forward

Authentic leadership starts from within. This signature Notre Dame program for established executives helps you find creative solutions to pressing business issues and drive change. The world is in urgent need of great leaders. Come to Notre Dame this fall or spring.

New Perspectives and Tools

The Executive Integral Leadership week is for accomplished, innovative executives and successful team-leading directors—individuals who sincerely want to grow as leaders.

The program begins with Notre Dame’s Integral Leadership Model, which considers you, as a leader, in relation to complex business challenges, and focuses on an inside-out developmental approach. Effective leaders learn to account for themselves, those around them, and the systems in place within their organizations. An enhanced level of attention increases the executive’s capacity to diagnose issues, develop change initiatives, evaluate strategic options, and sustain success.
 Participants gain a holistic framework and a set of tools for leadership.

The week also includes executive coaching based on a robust 360° feedback instrument, The Leadership Circle Profile™.

I came in expecting EIL to be mainly fluff.  What came from each session was profound. And, I got more from this coaching session than from any other coaching session in which I have ever participated." --EIL participant

"The hospital nominated me to attend EIL and one of the specific ideas I brought back was how to use polarities. It’s not ‘either/or’ but finding the power of ‘both/and.’ How can we say, ‘We’ll do this, and what else will we do?’ It doesn’t have to be either/or. That has opened up more dialogue and even more creativity with my staff in a remarkable way."

"Notre Dame helped me to understand that now’s the time to move forward. I think that ability to lead was already there, and I simply hadn’t exercised it. Now I am exercising it."

"Prior to EIL, I thought I was successful if I achieved results. Now, I focus on making those results sustainable and to passing a holistic approach along to bright followers.  I was seeking an immersive experience with business leaders to be able to adopt a systems approach, and get feedback on how I lead in my local government role where we are trying to redefine the way we do business for better accountability in efficiency and effectiveness to the community."
