Learn to establish your negotiating leadership, leverage your best self, navigate cross-cultural dynamics, and manage emotional factors.
Top-performing companies have certain ingredients of success in common: Positive leadership is one of them.
Research proves that positive approaches to leadership deliver significantly better business results than common, old-fashioned methods that target weakness and deficit. In this five-day program, you'll gain cutting-edge tools to invigorate your leadership style by focusing on what works. You'll learn techniques to leverage your unique leadership strengths and stimulate performance gains in others. You'll come away with powerful tools to increase employee engagement, transform your organization's culture, drive innovation and change, and improve your bottom line.
The faculty of this program won the Academy of Management's 2012 research impact award for translating knowledge into practice.
• Through examining your leadership style and completing case analyses and team exercises, you'll harness tools used by leaders across the globe to yield top results.
• A case study comes to life through a corporate visit. Engagement during and after class with faculty and peer executives who share your commitment to positive leadership will invigorate your approach to your work and provide insight from across industries.
Applications for Positive Leadership are accepted until 3 weeks before the program start date. This allows the Admissions Committee to review the application, and also allows you to complete the Reflected Best Self Assessment in time for the program start. This critical program component is required for day 1 activities and throughout the program.
