What is Personal Leadership Effectiveness?

The Women’s Personal Leadership Effectiveness™ Program (PLE) is offered by the Inseitz Group to help aspiring female leaders enhance and build skills important to their professional and personal success.

The Women’s PLE Program is the only in-depth, uniquely women-focused, character-based, accredited professional development program in Northwest Arkansas. Speakers and mentors include high-ranking executives and officials from Northwest Arkansas. The program is accredited by Future Achievement International®.

Classes alternate between in-class meetings at the Center for Non Profits at St. Mary’s, 1200 West Walnut, Suite 1083, Rogers, AR  72756 and online independent study.

To be eligible to participate in the upcoming session, women must be employed for at least three years, have served in a mid-level supervisory position for at least one year or supervised a program or project, show an openness to feedback and a willingness to learn, and be willing to commit to the time and rigor of the program.

Becky Paneitz, who developed the program, is the president emeritus of NorthWest Arkansas Community College and founder of the Inseitz Group, which works to advance women’s initiatives.

“The curriculum and self-assessment tool provide the perfect foundation for the program,” Paneitz said. “Our program empowers women to make a real difference in all aspects of their lives.”

Women in the Personal Leadership Effectiveness program will:

  • Learn about character-based principles that impact personal and professional success.
  • Hear professional women speak about the impact these principles have had on their personal and professional lives. In-person class sessions will also serve as networking sessions for participants. 
  • Meet with assigned personal coaches to complete a personal and professional life plan.

Research conducted with Fortune 500 CEOs by the Stanford Research Institute International and the Carnegie Mellon Foundation found that 75 percent of long-term job success depends on soft skills and people skills, while only 25 percent depends on technical skills.
