Navigating from mid-career professional to senior executive can be the most challenging and least straight-forward part of your career journey. MLT’s Career Advancement Program (CAP) is designed to help African-American, Hispanic and Native-American professionals advance in the pipeline to senior leadership. CAP offers a personalized approach to professional growth through six-months of executive coaching, workshops, introspective experiences, and assignments. CAP includes a week-long, in-residence leadership development seminar, interval manager engagement, corporate culture integration, continuous one-on-one coaching, and personalized assessments.

The MLT Career Advancement Program Experience

Your MLT CAP experience will include an in-residence learning experience, executive coaching and active learning assignments over a formal six-month program followed by continued application, reflection and a reunion weekend. Throughout CAP you will address critical performance and behavioral gaps through intensive learning courses delivered using a phased approach:

Phase 1: Assessment and Awareness – CAP Fellows undergo a full assessment that includes a formal inventory and input from their managers and peers. The executive coaching begins during this phase.

Phase 2: Experiential Learning – Fellows attend the Leadership Horizon Seminar (LHS). A 6 day in-residence learning experience during which the group goes through key CAP curriculum elements, are exposed to global insights from world-renown business leaders, are provided with networking opportunities, and receive additional peer assessments. Executive coaching continues during this phase.

Phase 3: Reflection and Action – Fellows continue executive coaching sessions, participate in a leadership lesson series, and receive LHS post-work curriculum assignments that re-enforce the learnings from the previous phases. Participants/Fellow are given a final outcome report, a personalized, detailed evaluation that chronicles their development journey.

Phase 4: Ongoing Networking and Development – Fellows begin their practicum, a period of individual reflection. Key concepts and principles are applied “on the job” and in professional/personal settings. At the completion of the program, Fellows/participants are invited to the annual CAP Graduation and Reunion, and extended additional leadership and networking opportunities as distinguished CAP alumni.

Patricia Hayling Price is an executive coaching and leadership consultant supporting individuals and organizations wishing to reach higher levels of effectiveness and reward.  She is an instructor; developer and Managing Director for Management Leadership for Tomorrow’s (MLT’s) Executive Programs.  Patricia has enjoyed working with MLT since November of 2006 where the opportunity to design, deliver and grow CAP has been a joy and a privilege. She believes that “to become an aware leader, it can be most useful to have a qualified personal champion to help you discover what is stopping you from being unstoppable; to help you explore the possible, fine-tune your image and enhance your relationship with yourself and others. 1:1 coaching is a journey that can open an untold door.”

Patricia honed her skills while building a stellar career at IBM, working for over two decades across numerous domestic and global leadership roles.  Her early years on stage and television contribute to her keen sense for image and communication development for her clients.  In her private practice she has delivered assessments, workshops and coaching for mid-level managers, senior leaders and teams from MasterCard, Viacom-BET, Pace University Center for NFP Leadership, Bank of America, GWI, Mellon Bank, Ernst and Young, Goldman Sachs, Heidrick & Struggles, Rodman and Renshaw, MMC, Reed Elsevier (LexisNexis) and Media6Degrees among others.

She has been a speaker and facilitator for MasterCard’s Global Woman’s Leadership Summit, Cornell Univ. Graduate Woman’s Leadership Summit, National Association of Black Women Attorney’s, ELC’s Black Women on Wall Street Symposium, and The Westchester/Fairfield Executive Women’s Society.  Her coaching column has been featured in the Network Journal News.  In 2010 she was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” conducting a live coaching for the Career Advancement Program.

She and her husband recently celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary. They are the proud parents of a son who is attending Harvard University and a daughter who recently graduated from the University of Pennsylvania.
