As you ascend to new levels of management, it's important to build on your leadership strengths and gain new tools to achieve greater impact.

In this five-day sabbatical for mid-level managers, you'll learn to set the right vision, build and inspire teams, and drive change. You'll reflect on your leadership approach and understand how others perceive you. You will examine multiple leadership practices and choose how to integrate the most useful elements to achieve career and organizational goals.

Content provides an intense immersion into the knowledge and expertise related to leadership and team development. The challenges of managing teams through change play a prominent role in the program.

Faculty director Scott Derue was named one of the top 40 business school professors under 40 by Poets and Quants and CNN Money.

Scott DeRueFive Ways to Enable Extraordinary Performance

— Scott DeRue

How to put positive leadership principles to work immediately:

  1. Frame staff's positive qualities, existing strengths, and past successes as opportunities for building on existing excellence.
  2. Approach negative experiences with a positive orientation to enhance their developmental value.
  3. Link and reinforce positive experiences over time to foster positive development cycles.
  4. Recognize others' struggles and respond by providing feedback, mentoring, coaching, training, and resources.
  5. Give frequent feedback about the positive contribution or impact your colleagues have on others.
