For over 20 years, CODA’s founding partners have conducted research regarding what works in leadership development while serving as leadership development practitioners. This scholar-practitioner focus led to a grounded theory on leader self-identity emergence and the evidence-based framework known as Connected Leadership®. The Connected-Leadership program is built on that framework.

In any CODA program, the richness of the experience and the learning comes from the participants. Rather than describe or prescribe the “right” leader behavior, trainers use high-impact activities, guided discussions, case studies, that encourage participants to reflect on who they are, and aspire to be as leaders, to share the lessons of their past experiences, and to consider how they will apply new learning to current challenges.

The program has been nationally recognized for its outcome-driven approach to leadership development and its research in leadership development best practices.
