The MDS Management and Leadership Excellence (MLE) program is another unique, cost-effective developmental opportunity for managers that has been highly successful with clients including MJHS, CBRE/JCI, Visiting Nurse Regional Health Care System, and Grand View Hospital. The MLE program consists of 4-6 full day monthly meetings; approximately six participants meet for a group workshop session in the morning and individualized coaching in the afternoon. Program participants have substantive assignments between sessions and maintain ongoing contact with MDS, even after program completion.

The MLE program has helped managers to improve significantly in such areas as:

  • Interpersonal/communication skills
  • Motivation skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Conflict management
  • Developing and mentoring staff
  • Building and maintaining workplace relationships
  • Delegation skills
  • Managing up and across
  • Leading change
  • Decision making and problem solving
  • Presentation skills
  • Negotiating, persuading, and influencing

As a result of the MDS MLE program, senior and middle managers have gained important new management and leadership perspectives, insights, and understandings that they have applied successfully on the job every day. They have also built strong, substantive relationships with their MLE colleagues that have proven beneficial in many ways.
