To succeed, leaders must continuously improve their operational or business acumen, acquire and develop new leadership skills, cultivate agile mindsets and synthesize large amounts of data and information to make critical business decisions. This course teaches the crucial skills needed to compete in rapidly changing environments where team, organizational and data-driven leadership capabilities are essential for success.

Through personal and team journeys, ongoing coaching and application sessions and a series of experiential games-based, online experiences, you will explore and gain hands-on training in building and leading effective teams, conducting strategic business experiments and practicing strategies for countering common team pitfalls and increasing you team’s collective intelligence.
