Leadership In Action


Course Features

Be a force for change in your organization.

Our Leadership in Action course is action-focused in content and delivery. More than ever, professionals must be able to empower people to lead with extraordinary poise, heart, and skill. Leadership in Action provides professionals with a powerful new foundation, key diagnostic concepts, action strategies informed by cutting-edge research, and extraordinary new beginnings beyond your traditional ways to lead.

The program is an opportunity to think deeply about your own leadership, purpose, and "default" reactions and to develop new ways of approaching the complex challenge of strengthening the capacity of others in today’s evolving, interdependent world. Designed for professionals from a wide range of organizations and sectors the course takes an immersive, experiential approach to leadership, and participants are expected to help shape conversation, identify and question their own ideas about leadership, and exercise leadership throughout the program in a highly-interactive learning environment (without Power Point.)

All courses include:

  • Industry-leading faculty
  • Collaborative learning
  • Research-driven results
  • Lifelong connections
  • Practical applications
  • Custom solutions

Leadership in Action is an immersive course that teaches you how to intervene and how to act as a leader in your organization.
