About the course
How can you become a leader who drives powerful strategic outcomes? At the nexus of executive management and successful business goals is a vital and robust company culture. This high-level ability to create and foster culture takes visionary leadership that inspires, motivates, and guides employees to align company values and norms with their work. High-functioning and strategic cultures enable greater productivity, sustainability, and, most importantly, company success.
Changing company culture is no small feat, but with the right tools and leadership training, you will be skilled in effectively managing change and innovation while implementing business culture to drive strategic goals.
Designed to bridge the gap between leadership and culture in strategic management, the Leading Strategy Execution Through Culture training program provides executive business leaders with research-based tools to nurture a positive company culture and room to explore how managers can create a culture for change. Driven by Dr. Chatman's research and consulting focus - making her a leading international expert with clients across top Fortune 500 companies and global medium-sized firms - the program centers around visionary leadership and applying your unique leadership style to advance strategic planning, performance, and goals.
A personalized leadership assessment (administered before the program) will provide you with insights that can be actualized into tangible actions when you return to work. Please allow for several weeks to coordinate and complete the pre-work required for this program. You will be asked to complete a leadership self-assessment, a desired culture assessment, and to engage colleagues from your organization to evaluate your leadership style and your organization or department’s culture. It is best to engage your colleagues several weeks before the program begins to give them time to complete their part(s). All assessment work must be done prior to the program start – reports based on the assessment data will be distributed during the first session.
