Who Attends

 This program is designed for leaders in strategic roles who are called upon to make complex, cross-organizational decisions, and want to identify and enhance their leadership abilities and leverage a powerful understanding of their own style and “blind spots.”  Strategic leaders who are new to higher levels of leadership, who are in a new environment, or who are leading a new team will also benefit.

Program participants will earn 4 credits in the Leadership discipline toward the LIMRA Leadership Institute (LLIF) designation.


Leadership Strategies includes an executive strategy simulation, peer feedback, faculty coaching, and assessment tools to provide an in-depth understanding of your own leadership style and its impact on others. You will discover the role emotional intelligence plays in potential success or derailment and develop a personalized action plan to enhance your ability to influence and lead more effectively in your own organization.
