Virtually all graduate students will eventually find themselves managing and leading others whatever career they pursue. Being an effective manager/leader requires hard work and training. This leadership workshop focuses on helping participants assess some of their core leadership strengths and areas for development.
Participants take three behavioral assessments designed to identify their ability to self manage, develop others, think strategically, influence and exert power, build relationships and teams, and achieve results. As part of the assessment process, participants also receive confidential input from colleagues, peers, and advisors (of their choosing) through an online 360 degree feedback instrument. Then in three, three-hour workshops, participants learn their results and then participate in experiential exercises and discussions aimed at learning practical tools for increasing their personal leadership effectiveness. The workshop focuses on three core areas of understanding:
Specific learning objectives for each workshop are provided below. This is an active experiential class where participants are expected to both give and receive feedback. Approximately 90 minutes of pre-work is expected before the series begins and an hour of reading before each workshop.
