About the course

In the St. Thomas Leadership and Management Program, you’ll focus on the essentials of successful leadership so that you can deliver results back to your team and organization right away.

Leaders are called to think critically, make tough calls, motivate others and drive business results. Leaders also need to know themselves—both their strengths and their blindspots.

The Leadership and Management Program is ideal for those who are new in a leadership role or technical experts in their first role with direct reports. You’ll start with a self-assessment to get a baseline of your leadership abilities. In the sessions that follow, you’ll expand your leadership toolkit:

  • Improving your strategic decision-making ability to bring positive change to your organization
  • Broadening perspective beyond your department, function, or business
  • Building and maintaining high-trust relationships with stakeholders at all levels
  • Leveraging available resources to better manage the complexity of your day-to-day job
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Getting work done through others
  • Increasing your personal credibility with others
  • Gaining confidence to take on your expanding management and leadership role, including becoming more comfortable making difficult choices

Case studies, simulations, group discussions and real-world exercises give you opportunities to practice your new leadership skills, so you’re well prepared to use them at work. Small class sizes create a collaborative learning environment and help you build your network of fellow leaders. Sessions are held on the downtown Minneapolis campus, and parking is available within one block. There are no prerequisites for this program.

Benefits of This Program

After completing the Leadership and Management program, you’ll be better equipped to:

Build trusting relationships. Gain respect from all areas of your company. Increase your personal awareness. Understand how you lead and how others perceive your actions.

Lead with confidence. Managing will always have its challenges, but our program strengthens your ability to make difficult decisions.

Delegate. It’s essential to be able to delegate tasks, so you can focus your key leadership responsibilities.

In this program, you’ll also gain a new network of professional peers—your fellow classmates. You can turn to this network for support long after the program ends.

  • Transitioning from an expert to a manager to a leader
  • Strategic thinking, planning and decision-making
  • Systems thinking
  • Change management and leadership
  • Leveraging your emotional strengths
