Making the Most of the Experience
Leadership experiences can’t simply begin and end with the program itself. You’ll begin your leadership journey by reading a couple of short but powerful articles prior to the program. Following the program, you’ll have an opportunity for a one-on-one coaching session with one of the program facilitators to help ensure you’re able to implement what you’ve learned.

What is your leadership narrative? In higher education, we always seem too busy to stop and reflect on our personal philosophy on how we are to lead our teams. In this session, we will assess both the strengths and weaknesses of your current team while addressing the tendencies that shape your leadership style.Participants will complete the “Powerful Team Diagnostic” to support the development of their respective teams. By the end of this session, you will be able to create and communicate your vision while developing a plan of action for your own ongoing development.
