About the course

Develop the essential leadership skills necessary to lead into the smart machine age, preparing your organization for the future of work.

There is nothing like the present upheaval to put a focus on how important great leadership is to any organization. In this program, we take a different approach to leadership, one which puts the idea of the leader as servant as central, and see how this enables you to grow as a leader and create better results for your organization.

This unique program features live virtual sessions, diagnostic assessments, coaching session and leadership reflections. Live virtual classes will meet for 4 hours per day, with project and team work to be done outside of the live sessions. Led by the Darden faculty team of Professors Ed Hess, Sankaran Venkataraman and Andy Wicks.

Program Overview

Refine your natural management inclinations with individual coaching and discover how empathy, communication and encouragement can drive your team in extraordinary new directions.

  • Learn what it means to practice leadership as a servant and the power it creates within organizations
  • Become more aware of your leadership skills, how you affect others and complete diagnostics that help you better understand your impact as a leader
  • Understand how servant leadership can be adapted to different organizational settings and contexts to see how it can drive improved results
  • Deepen your knowledge of human behavior, including our capacity to bring out the best in people as well as our darker side, and how you can lead more responsibly
  • Expand your capacity to think creatively and develop new insights essential for navigating through challenging times

Advanced preparation includes case study and book excerpt readings. The selected case studies and books will be sent prior to the program for all participants to read and prepare for discussion on the first day of the course.
