Kellogg Executive Education is partnering with Poker Power to offer a unique and highly innovative program designed for mid- to senior-level women executives. Through the game of poker, participants will learn key leadership skills in an educational, supportive, engaging and entertaining environment.
Grounded in our faculty’s expertise, the program content will address everyday matters such as decision-making, negotiation, emotional intelligence and nonverbal communication. These topics lie beneath the surface in a game of poker and successful players know how to use them to their advantage. Women deal with these same issues throughout their careers and can also learn to leverage them for their own success. Through a highly interactive approach, participants will discover how to enhance their careers by learning to:
“Not only have I learned a new skill and gained a ton of new insights into how to make better decisions and be the best version of myself, but it has also been awesome to learn that so many other women struggle with the same things I do, such as a lack of confidence.”
This program is offered in a live virtual format. Our live virtual programs are built to deliver a rich experience that’s comparable to our in-person programs. You will have the opportunity to engage with our faculty and your peers in live discussions and lecture sessions. You will come away with the tools to navigate and succeed in the new business landscape.
