About the course

Immerse yourself in a “T-group” weekend lab focused on interpersonal dynamics, real-time feedback, and effective leadership behaviors.

Being a successful leader in today’s interdependent and global workplace requires a broad range of interpersonal skills — from productively engaging with others and communicating clearly to exchanging influence and connecting across differences. Interpersonal Dynamics Weekend Lab: Leadership from the Inside Out gives you a personalized, intimate, and safe setting where you can take risks, create openness, and lead with authenticity.

Over the course of one intensive weekend you’ll be introduced to the power of the “T-group” learning methodology designed to increase self-awareness and interpersonal effectiveness. Two Stanford-trained facilitators will guide 24 participants as they learn more about themselves and how to lead from the inside out. It’s a training lab for creating more productive, professional, influential, and personal relationships.

Key Benefits

  • Learn to give and receive constructive and positive peer feedback.
  • Practice key leadership skills such as building trust, deep listening, expressing empathy and vulnerability, and influencing others.

Experience the “T-group” learning methodology in an intimate and intensive weekend with 24 participants and 2 Stanford-trained facilitators.

Collaborative. Immersive. Productive. Based on one of Stanford GSB’s most popular courses Interpersonal Dynamics, known as “touchy feely,” the curriculum is comprised of 100% experiential activities with no lectures or homework. Interpersonal Dynamics Weekend Lab: Leading from the Inside Out uses the “T-group” learning methodology to help you learn about yourself and others. You'll learn how to communicate more effectively, connect across differences, and increase your influence on others.
