Building Relationships, Improving Outcomes
The Accelerated Development Program provides a unique bridge between current business research and practical, real world skills. To optimize the learning that each participant gains, the program incorporates a variety of activities, including a series of preparatory assignments, full days of class projects, two weekend sessions, evening events, and coaching.
Highly successful companies have leadership at all levels, and this program will consider the differences between leadership and management. By examining personal style and disposition, participants will identify the areas of their management style that are strengths and will support their transition into greater levels of responsibility and, perhaps more importantly, identify critical development areas that may hinder their future performance.
The best designed process and technical mastery does not necessarily lead to optimal decisions and outcomes, yet career success is often linked to competence in high stakes decision making. After understanding the core elements of individual and group reasoning, participants become more attune to unconscious bias through cases, short role plays, and a personal assessment on the role of emotions.
