About the course
STC – Skills, Tools, and Competencies is an international program offered in partnership with the Kellogg School of Management, designed for senior leaders and managers who need to craft strategies and implement them into their industries or business units.
The program was designed for a new business landscape, where changes are a part of daily life, and addresses three core values: team leadership and management, organizational management, and operating in an ecosystem. STC participants are encouraged to become agents of these changes, both at work and in their personal lives.
STC’s objective is to enable senior executives and directors to create and implement strategies within a context characterized by constant change.
The program reveals the impact of this new environment on business management and the challenges of leadership, as well as offering a new perspective on making more conscious decisions in the pursuit of better results. STC participants will be exposed to exponential technologies and the changes they promote in organizations, and they will be encouraged to constantly seek to deepen their knowledge, since it is difficult to anticipate the future through benchmarking or best practices.
The lectures are designed to improve engagement and critical thinking.
Participants are challenged to reflect on the fundamentals needed to achieve organizational and professional results.
Changes and their impacts on both leadership and business models are key issues in all modules.
