Welcome to Developing Your Skills as a Manager: A Bootcamp for Mid-Level Leaders .  Our hope is that you walk away with skills and tools to lead and motivate your team in addition to a support team that will extend long beyond our time together! This is your “one-stop shop” for all course materials and instructions you will need to guide you through the bootcamp.

A couple important notes to get you started:

All course materials can be found in the “Access Course Materials” tab to the left.  Any course materials you will need to prepare for the live sessions, including copies of slides, assignments and assessments, will be made available at the beginning of the week.  Additional materials generated during the live sessions will be added by the end of the week.

Within your course materials, a detailed Course Syllabus will be updated and posted weekly as you progress through the program.  The syllabus will contain specific instructions for what needs to be completed before, during or after each session.  Please review the syllabus at the beginning and end of every week to ensure you are completing all required work at the right time.

As you prepare for our first meeting on September 27th, we ask that you please take the 5 Paths Self-Assessment prior to the meeting. This assessment will look at your leadership style under “normal” circumstances as well as under “stressful” circumstances. During the Kickoff Meeting, we will go through the self-assessment in more detail to help you understand your results. We will also officially kickoff the 360 process and will go through more details at that meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact me: Jess Landis, Learning & Development Manager, Academic Impressions
