About

Designed for first-line and mid-level managers positioned to take on increasing leadership roles in their organizations, the Becoming a Leader - Developing Your Style and Making Sound Decisions program at the Harvard University analyzes the symbiotic relationship between leadership and decision making.

Overview

It combines theory and practice to inform participants on how effective decisions are made, as well as how bad decisions can be avoided. Attention will be paid to recent research in neuroscience on the dual aspects of the decision-making process: intuitive vs. rational, and the respective values of both.

The Becoming a Leader - Developing Your Style and Making Sound Decisions programme is offered at the Harvard University.

Similarly, the qualities that make for an outstanding leader will be discussed, especially in terms of strategic decision making and implementation to maximize results for the organization. Tools and strategies learned will expand your ability to become a more confident leader.
