Presenters include Center staff, nationally known consultants, and distinguished university faculty. The course utilizes a variety of instructional methods and styles, simulations, discussion, and a confidential, multi-rater leadership skills assessment to facilitate learning. Topics vary to meet changing needs, but this year's offerings include opportunities to build skills in: Advocacy, Communication Strategies, Teamwork, Vision, Values & Integrity, Organizational Culture, Diversity, Negotiation, and Change Management.
Included in the program, participants will receive a one-on-one coaching session with one of the Center's experienced executive coaches.
