Building Leaders of Character (BLOC) 2.0

The Thayer Leadership is honored to have the opportunity to partner with MAPP in its continued leadership development efforts for the plastics industry.  Thayer provides a world-class leadership experience and is second to none in the leader development space.  During BLOC 2.0 leadership journey, alumni will take what they’ve learned in the past and elevate the lessons while combining a new focus for the next level.

Thayer’s unique approach to leadership development was focused on the Army’s leadership philosophy of “Be, Know, Do”, which focuses on creating complete leaders through the development of character, knowledge, and application. 

“Be, Know, Do” is incorporated into overarching principles and transformative experiences that are directly applicable to the environment and outcomes and fosters leadership of team members, teams, and organizations.

During BLOC 2.0 the six functions of the Thayer Leadership Inventory are central and critical to assess leader capabilities to align leadership and management actions to guide an organization towards success and achieve results with integrity.
