Expand your influence.
Success in a senior management role requires a shift in mindset and orientation. Organizational Leadership: People, Culture and Performance helps you look beyond your immediate team and expand your focus to the broader needs of the organization. Designed to help you expand your personal influence and effectiveness, this program provides you with the tools to contribute to strategy, improve the quality of your thinking and decisions and lead more effectively.

Think and act strategically.
By the end of the five day program you will develop insights regarding how and why silos form in organizations, and what highly effective leaders do to break down silos and enhance cross-functional collaboration. These insights will equip you to drive change more effectively and to shape a high-performance culture within your organization.
If you are moving into a more senior role for the first time, you will receive the tools and frameworks you will need to change your approach and priorities so you can succeed. If you have already assumed senior leadership responsibilities, you will benefit from insights on alternative approaches and strategies that you can adopt to ensure your success in delivering on your new responsibilities.
Maximize your growth.
Our model of in-class learning, simulations and personal advisory boards allows you to increase your self-awareness and close the gap between understanding and action. Combined with senior business leaders as guest speakers and a diverse group of highly motivated peers, you will experience a rich fabric of opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed.
