, MA,
Every day we make decisions based on a personal set of assumptions that are often guided by our “gut instinct.” Understanding the why and how of those assumptions—and how to manage them—can result in better leadership.

About

  • The executive education program, Leadership for the 21st Century: Chaos, Conflict and Courage, delves into why we lead the way we do. The program offers a stimulating and challenging curriculum that invites you to learn how to exercise leadership with more courage, skill and effectiveness.
A Unique Approach to Leadership
  • Leadership for the 21st Century: Chaos, Conflict and Courage is different than other executive education leadership programs that focus primarily on building a distinct set of skills and tactics. Instead, you'll reflect on your deepest assumptions and most strongly held values. You'll then consider how those values and beliefs may have limited you in the past.
  • The program also challenges you to look beyond formulating quick technical solutions that try to solve deeper organizational issues. Instead, it asks you to examine yourself and the competing commitments and loyalties in your organization or community.
  • The one-week program requires participants to be actively engaged on several levels—in the classroom, in small groups and in individual reflection.
