CAN WE PREVIEW THE CODA CURRICULA OR MATERIALS?
Yes. Any CODA certified trainer can provide you with electronic previews of CODA program materials. You may also obtain previews by emailing us at Connect@CODAPartners.net.
WHAT MAKES THE CODA PROGRAMS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TODAY?
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.
CAN WE PURCHASE THE CODA PROGRAMS WITHOUT TALKING TO A CERTIFIED TRAINER?
No. In order to ensure that its programs are delivered in a manner consistent with its grounded theory and evidence-based learning practices CODA requires that customers work with a CODA Certified Trainer.
Any CODA Certified Trainer can provide you with electronic previews of CODA program materials.

WHAT CRITERIA SHOULD WE USE WHEN SELECTING PARTICIPANTS?
Since this program can be valuable to emerging and experienced leaders, formal and informal leaders, and leaders of people, projects and thought, you need not limit the program to a specific leadership level or tenure.
We encourage you to evaluate a potential participant's:
1. Intention to lead.
2. Capacity for growth and success.
3. Readiness for learning.
4. Ability and availability to fully and actively participate.
Our CODA Certified Trainers can provide questions to help you assess these four criteria.
CAN OUR IN-HOUSE LEARNING DEVELOPMENT PROFESSIONALS BE CERTIFIED TO DELIVER CODA PROGRAMS?
Yes. CODA offers license agreements to organizations who have their own experienced development professionals. That license agreement includes a train the trainer program to certify an agreed upon number of in-house trainers and all materials those trainers would need to deliver the program. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 727-302-9170 to discuss this option further.
