About the course
This unique, live, online course engages you as an emerging leader, wherever you are in your career. Even if you’ve done leadership training before, this is a fresh experience—you hold up a mirror, see yourself anew, and engage in a dynamic learning lab with peers.
Explore the roots of your impact—from personal style to culture to gender and beyond—and make better decisions through better awareness. This experience, particularly coming out of the pandemic, strengthens your creative power and resilience.
By the end of this course, you will be able to
- Identify individual strengths and limitations and determine how to work with them
- Apply vital communication and connection capabilities
- Stay centered and adaptable in the face of stress
- Practice targeted personal leadership strategies you will continue to revisit and refine
Most suitable for
