Guided by Kellogg’s expert faculty through lectures, hands-on exercises and interactive dialogue, you will explore how to maximize your own performance and engage and inspire others to action by communicating a sense of purpose, values and vision.
You will also examine the strengths, motivations and conditions necessary for authentic and powerful leadership, learn the behaviors that differentiate leaders with extraordinary impact, and develop your own "story" or personal narrative for strengthening your leadership impact in your organizations. You will learn to become the change you want to see in your organization and align yourself with an adaptive and growth-based mindset.
