Communication - video playlist
Good communication is an important aspect of your professional life, your personal life, and everything else in between. These videos provide models and tools to help you communicate well, both verbally and in writing. We want you to develop an appreciation for why you should be able to communicate well and the importance of good communication skills to your role as a Defense Acquisition professional and developing leader.
Five Dimensions of Leadership - video playlist
When you think about the word "Leader," do you describe this person as the one who steps up and says, "I know what to do, follow me!" or, do you see leading as more multi-dimensional? The successful leader moves smoothly between multiple dimensions (The Leader In Front, From Behind, Beside, From Within, and Of the Whole) to meet the demands of any situation. These videos will help you move beyond the familiar “leader in charge” dimension to offer you ways to lead in five different dimensions. (Click here to Apply for this course.)
Growing as an Acquisition Leader - video playlist
This course provides an opportunity to explore the value in adopting an outcome orientation that allows you to create your own future rather than focusing on a problem orientation that frequently results in the perpetuation of dysfunctional behaviors. You will also learn how to make the shift from the Drama Triangle reactive roles of victim, persecutor and rescuer to The Empowerment Dynamic creative roles of creator, teacher/challenger, and coach.
Leading-Managing-Contributing - video playlist
In your career thus far, you have probably been able to excel as an individual. You have been effective because you can single-handedly control outcomes by being self-reliant. You have been effective, so the need to make changes in order to break through to leadership may not be apparent to you. There does come a time, though, when you will outgrow your individual effectiveness, no matter how well it has served you in the past. In these videos, we will explore the three key roles leaders play – leader, manager, and contributor – and we will help you identify characteristics that you might want to work on developing so you can push yourself outside the comfort zone of “effective” and take on each of these roles.

Mastering the Strategic Moment - video playlist
Two of the most valuable commodities of today’s leaders are time and attention. Both are hard to come by and competition for them is fierce. With an endless stream of meetings, plans and taskers, it may seem as if we have little control over what happens to us with regard to time and space. That’s the bad news; the good news is we can learn to manage our time and focus our attention in ways that open up space. Mastering the Strategic Moment provides tools to help leaders deliberately choose how and where they direct their attention and how to strategically manage their time so they can be fully present in each moment where their attention is needed.
