Colwen’s Leadership Development Program is our proprietary methodology to help team members experience on the job training with one-on-one mentorship. Focused on developing future leaders, we like to empower self-starters, welcome new ideas, and seek out those interested in leaving a lasting legacy. This acceptance-only program offers a comprehensive training curriculum that teaches practical skills and at the same time paves the way for Colwen Hotels Succession Planning. We have worked hard to narrow the focus of our program to ensure we cover all the bases, using a variety of modalities.

Structured for success, the combination of the Focus Tool with a series of online modules provides comprehensive and vital skills for team members. In addition, we pair participants with senior leadership for monthly meetings and regular measurement for a win-win setup. Participants work side-by-side with Colwen’s award-winning team, gaining invaluable experience and exposure to hotel operations in a small setting. Throughout the program, we create a culture of curiosity and learning, encouraging participants to talk through thoughts with their assigned mentor.

The Focus Tool provides a deep dive on several critical areas which include: accountability and responsibility, coaching/mentoring, communication, conflict resolution, dealing with change, empowerment, improving attitudes, motivating others, teamwork, trust and integrity.

The 24 online modules include: Pre-Discussion Questions, Video Instruction, Note-Taking Guide, Post-Discussion Questions, Exercises, Test and Personal Action Plans. Important topics covered include:
