Essentials of Leadership


http://business.rice.edu/OpenEnrollmentPrograms/
During the foundation course, participants will develop an understanding of the importance of leadership at all levels (i.e., leadership capacity) within highly successful companies. They will begin an introspection of their own leadership styles, which will be re-examined throughout future leadership programs. Participants will consider the differences between leadership and management and that leadership is critical in any successful change initiative. Participants will also examine the role that individual disposition plays in the development of leadership style, team interactions, and leader effectiveness. Ultimately this course focuses on helping participants identify the areas of their management style that are strengths and will support their transition into greater levels of responsibility and, perhaps more importantly, identify critical development areas that may hinder their future performance.
Dates: January 30 – 31, 2013

Application Deadline: December 30, 2012

Costs: $2,500 USD

Leader as Coach


http://business.rice.edu/OpenEnrollmentPrograms/
It is a widely accepted truth that for most organizations, it is the capability of the workforce that provides the company’s greatest competitive advantage. Following this insight, it then becomes evident that great leaders not only plan, organize and control – they develop strong capability in their people. This short course is designed to help leaders understand the frameworks and actions they can use to serve as talent magnets for and within their organizations as well as fully developing the capabilities of those leaders junior to them. We will examine differing levels of leadership, transition points between these, and the balanced use of different systems to grow leadership competency. We will pay close attention to coaching and mentorship as primary mechanisms, while understanding the roles that networks, job rotation, action learning and 360 degree feedback play in developing the total leader. We will also examine motivational concepts that support the best utilization of these activities, while matching these to the participants’ natural leadership style. As the war for talent continues to be a competitive differentiator, this short course provides the capabilities to not only win talented individuals into organizations – but to embed the development of leaders into the management culture itself.

Thinking Strategically


http://business.rice.edu/OpenEnrollmentPrograms/

Perhaps the most significant impact leaders can have on organizations is through their ability to think strategically. This is a substantially different activity than building a strategy. The strategic thinker is capable of the following, and thus these will form the elements of the module:



  • Easily sift through data and identify critical information

  • Develop, adopt or accept a desired future end-state

  • Identify key information requirements, resources and decision points along the path to reaching the end state

  • Balance the big picture awareness with tactical level understanding and details

  • Develop, maintain and adjust mental simulations that continually assess the elements above

Dates: April 10 – 11, 2013

Strategic Decision Making and Critical Reasoning


http://business.rice.edu/OpenEnrollmentPrograms/

Are you a good decision maker? A recent 2008 study of global firms by McKinsey concluded: “Individual and group psychology can cause irrational decision making by both individuals and organizations, resulting in less than ideal outcomes. Even the best-designed strategic planning processes don’t always lead to optimal decisions.” Improved technical mastery of a discipline (e.g., finance, engineering, geology, etc.) does not improve your competence in strategic decision making. However, career success is intricately linked to competence in strategic decision making.



“Strategic Decision Making & Critical Reasoning” is a leadership program designed to enhance your ability to understand your decision-making process and enhance your strategic decision-making skills in your personal and professional life. 

Course objectives:

  • Enhance your capability to frame, structure, and analyze decision opportunities from a strategic point of view

  • Sensitize you to the business and behavioral aspects of the decision process

  • Confirmation bias, loss aversion, emotional intelligence, availability heuristic, sunk-cost, etc.

  • Help you to examine and address the different issues in influencing and motivating people for successful decision implementation

  • Group think, common information bias, functional bias, listening impairment

  • Develop your decision skills through in-depth coaching of a decision in which you are currently involved

Dates: March 12-13, 2013

Application Deadline: TBD

Creative Strategy Development and Execution


http://www.rollins.edu/execed/evening-workshops/creative-strategy-development-and-execution/index.html
The idea that only “ivory tower” types in firms have to understand organizational strategy is so 1980s thinking!! In 2011, we all play a part in firm success – nobody can hide from it. No matter what industry and market you’re in – public or private sector, physical product manufacturer or service provider, business-to business or business-to consumer market – it’s not just the boardroom and c-suite people at the top that have a role in strategy success. Everybody has a role to play in strategy, and everybody had better be able to make their needed contribution!
The more all organization members understand about creative strategy development and execution the better the performance of the firm. Thus, this two-session workshop is appropriate for organization members at all levels. The word “creative” is critical, since it takes creativity to be successful in business today. This two-part workshop provides participants a lively and engaging “deep dive” into contemporary best practices in strategy development and execution. You will leave better-able to contribute to the success of your firm and your unit.
Date: March 12, 2013 and March 19, 2013 (6:30pm-9:30pm)
