Equipment Finance Industry’s Highly Anticipated STRIPES Leadership Program Launches
OCT 8, 2021 - 5:38 am
STRIPES Leadership Program, the professional and personal leadership development program designed to challenge and inspire best-in-class leaders within the equipment finance industry in partnership with Monitor, launched cohort one on Sept. 28.
The first STRIPES Leadership cohort includes 23 of the equipment finance industry’s best and brightest. After a comprehensive onboarding process with the STRIPES Leadership Program team over the past few weeks, STRIPES’ participants launched their leadership development journey last week with the Three-Day Breakthrough Intensive Program facilitated with STRIPES’ educational partner, Gap International.
The Three-Day Breakthrough Intensive Program is a transformational program for causing real change with leaders and teams. The program instills the practices of breakthrough thinking, dispelling existing frames of thinking from the past and removing barriers to producing unprecedented results. Every STRIPES participant completes the three-day program by creating a breakthrough project within their accountability at their respective organizations.
“I was truly blown away last week by the amazing commitment, passion and courage demonstrated again and again by the STRIPES participants during the Three-Day Breakthrough Intensive! They emerged on Thursday after three intense days as breakthrough leaders with a brand-new view of what’s possible for themselves, their teams and their companies. It was remarkable and inspiring,” Lisa Rafter, CEO and founder of STRIPES Leadership Program, said.
Cohort one is just beginning their personal and professional STRIPES leadership transformation journey. Participants will soon be diving deep into program Master Talks from equipment finance leaders, Master Workshops and more invaluable components delivered by industry leaders and best-in-class leadership experts. STRIPES participants will be moved and inspired, they’ll be confronted and challenged and they’ll ultimately take ground and develop into the leaders and creators for the future of the equipment finance industry.
STRIPES Leadership Program is a 10-month certificate granting program that provides immersive training delivered by recognized industry leaders and best-in-class leadership experts, including a partnership with global management consultancy firm Gap International. STRIPES offers rich components that build sustainably competitive transformations on both a personal and professional level.
