As an accomplished leader, you have earned your position. But do you have the tools you need to take your teams and your organization to the next level?
The Management of Managers Program will challenge you to adopt new ways of thinking that will increase your effectiveness as a leader. You'll learn to make better decisions under pressure, lead through complexity and ambiguity, develop talent, embrace risk, manage scale and scope, and lead with energy and intensity. Tools for cultivating and leveraging individual and organizational capabilities will be emphasized. You'll emerge with new frameworks to manage individuals, teams, and processes, and create a culture of high performance. You'll also gain best practices to measure performance, integrate divergent values, and capitalize on creativity and talent.
• You will learn to apply the principles of the Competing Values Framework, a world-renowned tool for understanding individual and organizational capabilities, to maximize outcomes.
• The University of Michigan-developed Leadership Competencies Survey, a 360-degree assessment taken prior to the program, and self-assessments during the program form the basis of the personalized action plan you develop during the course.
• Personalized coaching sessions will build upon your strengths and empower you to take on any personal or professional challenge.
