Those organizations that fail to develop individuals so they can assume increasing management responsibilities will fall behind their competitors.

High-Impact Leadership: Maximizing your leadership potential

Take your leadership potential to the next level. Great leaders are not born – they are made. But how? We believe that highly effective leadership skills are learned through a process of self-reflection, training, experience, and a willingness to challenge oneself and challenge conventional ways of problem solving.
High-Impact Leadership: Maximizing Your Leadership Potential combines the best practices and latest research into the art and science of leadership, decision-making, problem solving and organizational effectiveness.
The program focuses on three key areas:
Understanding oneself: Through a rigorous 360-degree evaluation process you will gain a full understanding of your strengths, weaknesses and potential career "derailers." An additional suite of leadership and conflict-management style assessments will provide further insight into the role these styles play in leadership effectiveness. After the program you will receive a one-on-one coaching session with a skilled executive coach who will help you make use of the rich data provided in the assessment process.
The Psychology of Leadership: Through stimulating exercises and engaging discussions that explore the latest research in managerial psychology, you will learn the best practices for improving individual and organizational decision making, how influence and power is leveraged in organizations, and powerful tools for removing obstacles for employee productivity.
Leading Others: Building upon the perspectives gained earlier in the program, we take a deep dive into a number of diverse leadership models. By understanding these different models, you will walk away with a tool-kit of approaches for managing others using the model best suited for each situation. Through exercises and discussion you will also gain the tools to build successful teams, manage conflict more effectively and link individual performance to organizational strategy.

Mini-MBA Certificate Program

The Loyola mini-MBAsm is a comprehensive management development program that provides cutting-edge business skills, coaching and leadership training to help propel your organization and your career forward.
To succeed in business, individuals must be able to see beyond their own functional area and understand how the organization operates as a whole. During this 10-week program, expert faculty exposes participants to the key management levers that drive organizational success. The program begins by exploring how organizations develop and implement strategy. Then, core functional areas of business are explored – from marketing to finance to accounting – to provide participants with a solid understanding of each function and how it contributes to organizational success.
We also recognize that in order to succeed, individuals must understand how their own individual leadership and management styles impact their performance. This program includes a series of assessment tools designed to evaluate participants’ unique motivations, work styles, and conflict-management approaches. Each participant will have the opportunity to review their results in a one-on-one coaching session with a leadership development expert. The program concludes with a leadership simulation exercise and an interactive session on the balanced scorecard approach to management, in which participants develop a strategy map for an organization in order to integrate the key take-aways from throughout the program.
