Growing into senior leadership roles
Designed for high-performing, early- to mid-career managers aspiring to take the challenging leap into senior leadership. This program focuses on enhancing leadership mindsets and behaviors, setting and leading a business strategy, problem solving for impact, and deepening participant understanding of nine functional business topics.

These programs are changing lives. The content was thought provoking, the time together was rich in reflection, and I came away from the program energized and ready to apply a new leadership approach.
