As senior executives ascend the management ladder, many find that the soft skills of leadership constitute their hardest challenges. Furthermore, most executives have come to rely on a familiar set of behaviors and skills. Recent data shows that top-performing leaders exhibit high emotional intelligence; they are able to adapt interpersonally and thrive in a diverse range of situations. Based on two of the Graduate School of Business’ most popular and long-standing courses, this program’s unique T-Group (Training Group) methodology and 12:1 student-faculty ratio provide a highly personalized learning experience for each participant. In this highly interactive program, senior-level executives learn how to engage in productive interpersonal exchanges, assess the impact of their own behaviors and leadership styles, and excel at creating more powerful, professional relationships in a variety of contexts.

Content Overview
As a business leader, you live in an increasingly interdependent world where you need others to get your work done. As you move up the leadership hierarchy, “command and control” no longer works as the major source of power—the ability to influence others becomes the determining factor for success. This workshop focuses on improving your emotional intelligence via the T-Group methodology. In small, experiential group settings, you will observe how your individual behavior affects others in real time, customize your learning based on those observations, practice key leadership skills with peer feedback, and experience the power that comes from being more fully yourself while becoming more effective. The afternoon application sessions transfer learning directly to the participant’s work situation. Class size is limited to 36 participants (divided into T-Groups of 12) to ensure maximized interaction with faculty and peer teams.

A Leadership Questionnaire is distributed to each participant’s colleagues and direct reports before the program. Participants then use the results to develop their own leadership action plans tailored to their personal objectives and the needs of their companies.

This unique program, hailed as nothing less than transformative, was developed from 30 years of work by faculty director David Bradford and his colleagues. Now, business executives will have the opportunity to benefit from this personally rewarding experience.

Key Takeaways
- Skills for developing, managing, and adapting personal style and behavior to a wider range of constituents for more effective leadership
- Frameworks and practice for inviting and providing feedback that strengthens performance and relationships
- Application plans for participants to apply the program learnings to their own specific work situations and to commit to a set of concrete implementation goals
- Optional follow-up coaching within two months of the program to help participants implement their application plan
- Practical tools that you can immediately apply based on the personalized Leadership Questionnaire
 
Who Should Attend
This program is designed for senior-level executives and general managers with at least seven years of management experience. It is appropriate for executives from organizations of any size and in any industry.

My experience in the program allowed me to gain a better understanding of myself, and how I am perceived and communicate with others.  This improved self-awareness and understanding has lead me to improve my ability to quickly relate to others on a deeper, more personal level, and rapidly develop meaningful dialogue that is clearly understood. I have continued to develop and focus on the the tools that were revealed to me during the program, leading to incredible results in my professional and personal life.”
