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?
Learn the techniques and approaches to make decisions in complex situations, manage across units, and bring out the best in your leadership team. You'll explore the critical components of effective management and leadership. 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 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 Competing Values Framework, a world-renowned conceptual tool for cultivating and benefiting from individual and organizational capabilities.
• 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.
• In-program coaching enables you to customize learning to your unique needs. In group-based exercises, you'll apply class concepts to your own scenarios and receive feedback from faculty and peer executives.
