All Ashby's Great Expectations core programs provide the essential elements of
the 10 focus areas of the process, each of which is then fortified and built-upon
during the two optional but highly recommended reinforcement phases, Encore
LCG believes that the combining of these three component pieces into one
seamless training process results in the single most comprehensive and
results-producing leadership training process in the marketplace today.
THE EMBED REINFORCEMENT PHASE
To embed something means to fix it in place in some lasting way, much like a
steel beam is embedded in a cement foundation or a diamond is embedded in a
piece of fine jewelry. We use the word embed to describe the series of optional,
but highly recommended (post-graduate) training modules used to reinforce the
skills developed by students during the "core" portion of the Ashby's Great
Expectations process. Embed training modules are typically two-hours in length
and can involve 100-200, or more, core program graduates from any number of
core program classes. Most modules are scheduled in advance on a weekly or
bi-weekly basis throughout the year and cover a variety of topics related to the 10
focus areas of the core program.
There is no limit to the number of Embed reinforcement meetings that may be
offered each year by participating client organizations, and no additional
charges of any kind. Only one faculty member per meeting is needed, regardless
of the number of participants. Great Expectations graduates are encouraged to
attend Embed reinforcement modules for as long as theyremain a part of their
THE ENCORE REINFORCEMENT PHASE
The word encore' has French origins and means to repeat something or
to do something again. And that's exactly what we mean when
we use it to describe the second part of the Ashby's Great
Expectations reinforcement process.
There are very few top-quality leadership training providers today that allow
graduates to take their comprehensive training programs a second time without
charge. It's just too expensive an offer. But that's not the case here. In fact, once
class members graduate from their Ashby's Great Expectations core program
they're not only allowed to take the 24-session core program again at any time
while a part of their host organization, but actually encouraged to do so. Why?
Because we know that the more practice and exposure people get to the
principles and other lessons a part of the core program the better they get at
And the better they get at using them, the more they keep developing
as truly first-class people and leaders.
