Developing Management Skills

This weekend-intensive program is designed for students who either are, or plan to be, in the position of managing their own work groups, heading up large companies, starting businesses that change society, managing the world's most important non-profits, or serving in government. The program will introduce basic language, concepts, tools, and problem-framing methodologies that are needed to develop management skills. We will focus on a variety of themes from motivating others, team-building, developing self-awareness, and communicating supportively to leadership, decision-making, understanding power and influence, and solving problems creatively.
