Leadership Development Program (5 days, Adelphi, MD)

Address: 3501 University Blvd. East, Adelphi, MD 20783 | Get Directions

Develop the confidence you need to build commitment and translate strategy into effective action.

The Leadership Development program will help you to strengthen and refine your fundamental leadership skills—communication, self-awareness, influence, and learning agility—as your role becomes more complex and demanding.

You will also focus on two essential competencies for managing in the middle zone.

  • Thinking and acting systematically: Understanding the big picture, seeing patterns, and dealing with trade-offs.
  • Enhancing your resiliency: Effectively managing stress, uncertainty, and setbacks.

Comprehensive assessments—along with an organizational business simulation, coaching, and peer learning groups—ensure that you will have a powerful and personal experience that drives results.

This five-day program is designed for experienced mid- to senior-level managers working in the middle zone of their organizations and is an especially good fit for operational, group, or department managers responsible for supervising management-level direct reports and working across functions.

Cost: $7,300. Hotel accommodations are available at the College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center at University of Maryland University College for an additional $1,000.
