Program Description: Leadership is about change: being able to make things happen with, and through, other people. Yet the world within which leaders operate is complex, dynamic, and unpredictable. To be effective as a leader, one needs to understand that world (i.e., how things work within one’s organization and one’s industry) but also willing and able to challenge the status quo. One needs to be able to articulate a compelling vision, but also to get that vision implemented. One needs to be highly competent as an individual contributer, yet also highly effective in motivating and inspiring others. In addition, leaders need to find the right balance between traditional top-down approaches to leading and collaborative/distributed approaches, and to work within a context that is less and less about control and formal authority and more and more about trust and informal influence.
Such challenges, and how to successfully meet them, are the subject of this program. We do not view leadership as solely the province of CEOs or individuals at the top of organizations or divisions. We view leadership as a mindset, a set of behaviors, and a set of actions that can be carried out by individuals at many levels of an organization each and every day. Whether you are leading a division, leading a group or team, mentoring an associate, or dealing with clients, all of these situations require leadership skills, and mastering these skills will help you become more effective.
This program will introduce you to a variety of analytical frameworks related to leadership and will focus on how to apply those frameworks to analyze and address important leadership challenges. It will also help you to better understand the context within which leaders typically operate, and help make you more conscious of the choices you make as a leader in an organization.
To achieve these objectives, we combine a variety of pedagogical approaches: lectures, discussions, case analysis, short videos, and group exercises. Emphasis is placed on self-reflection and linking the concepts from the course to participants’ own objectives and development as leaders.
Who Should Attend: Individuals with high potential for leadership, individuals who are managing other people or teams, and individuals with significant leadership responsibilities.

- Examine the meaning of leadership from multiple perspectives
