Leadership Strategies

2019年6月3日 - 2019年6月6日
Babson Executive Conference Center, Wellesley, MA USA



This program is designed for:

  • Leaders in all roles who want to identify and enhance their leadership abilities
  • Leaders who would benefit from leveraging a powerful understanding of their own style and “blind spots”
  • Individuals who are new to higher levels of leadership, who are in a new environment, or who are leading a new team


Develop a personalized action plan to enhance your ability to influence and lead. 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 gain valuable insights into your interpersonal strengths and development opportunities — and discover the role emotional intelligence plays in potential success or derailment.

  • Explore personal influence, potential for derailment, options for conflict management, and decision making.
  • Identify ways to develop trust, influence, and skills for giving and receiving feedback.
  • Discover the impact of emotional intelligence.
  • Create a personal development plan based on assessment results, feedback, and coaching.
