About the course
Expand your boundaries to achieve leadership and followership success.
For an entrepreneur building a company – or an entrepreneurial thinker strengthening an existing organization – moving beyond the leadership comfort zone is more than an option: It is necessary for survival.
The English language program Leadership in Action (LIA) shows managers how to achieve bold leadership skills and fresh paradigms to make effective decisions. It’s a rigorous, three-day, total-immersion experience. Using the transitional approach to change, an action-and-review framework extends thinking beyond classic presentation and case-study methods. The combined elements of action program segment and review segment work together to accelerate personal and professional growth – breaking out of the leadership routine and into greater opportunity.
