About This Course
This four-week program is designed for new and emerging leaders (people managers and individual contributors) who want to build foundational leadership skills through hands-on experience. Participants will build skills across four different dimensions and apply them in a simulated business experience. Content includes:
Developing people and conducting effective conversations.
Working across functions and other boundaries.
We have many stakeholders in our company - from team members to leadership to clients. This is all very relevant as a project manager who is front-facing across all groups.
I really enjoyed it. It was visually appealing, loved the simulation and the weekly videos were super helpful. Overall great content and great program.
This program was FABULOUS. I am so glad that I got to take part in it and would be happy to recommend it to others. Thank you so much for the opportunity!
