Learn how to practice self-reflection and pursue self-development opportunities; lead with character, by example and with authenticity; build resilience by developing routines to sustain energy, focus and well-being.
This three-week advanced leadership program will enrich you with fresh ideas and empower you to grow into an enterprise level leader.
THE FIRST WEEK: YOU
Week One focuses on you as a leader. Guided by faculty, you will examine and reflect upon what drives you as a leader, where you are strongest and how you can grow to reach desired goals.
What are your standout traits? How strong is your executive judgment? Does your resilience run deep? How much do you excel as a leader, not only in your own right but as a coach for others?
True leaders are reflective, and the first week targets reflection as a critical tool to realize your full leadership capabilities.
THE SECOND WEEK: YOUR ORGANIZATION
Week Two examines you and your leadership in context. No matter how strong your own qualities, your endeavors and the efforts of those you oversee will be limited if you don’t understand your relationship with the structure of your company and those who report to you.
How do your decisions impact your organization? What is the flow from you to your reports, and to those who plan and execute on the ground? How do they affect change at both the local and enterprise levels? Are you communicating clearly through the entire structure, and are you being heard and understood?
You’ll examine and strengthen the ties between you and your enterprise in Week Two.
THE THIRD WEEK: YOUR CALL TO ACTION
Week Three connects your work and learning from the previous two weeks, emphasizing effective action.
How do you implement your plans and accomplish your goals at the enterprise level? Are you ready to make the transition from reflection to results?
During Week Three, Enterprise Leadership Program faculty members work with you to prepare for your reentry into your own professional environment, providing you with the resources needed to communicate your newfound knowledge and goals with your management team.
