High Impact Leadership

This High Impact Leadership seminar is for professionals who aspire to positions of greater responsibility, accountability and organizational impact. Participants will enhance their leadership potential as they acquire skills to learn about themselves and how to positively influence others while solving problems, leading change, and maximizing their overall organizational effectiveness. 

Participants will begin by assessing their leadership traits and competencies against best practice benchmarks, then engage in short, contemporary business case studies to drive home concepts and provoke personal reflection. The instructor will facilitate a high-level of personal engagement, moving participants from concept to execution as they build tangible techniques and takeaways that can be applied in the workplace.

The Loyola Difference: The High Impact Leadership seminar develops leadership skills in the distinct Loyola tradition: reflecting on personal experiences, discerning individual competencies, leading through inspiration, and focusing on action, so that participants develop a personal leadership philosophy, style and methodology.

Great format, presentation of concepts, and plenty of group discussion. The leadership seminar provides real techniques and tools that can be applied to daily challenges.

I appreciated the immediate and continued team interaction. The course presented subjects and case studies that I recommend for self-awareness and leadership training.

-Stephen Shultz, Brown Advisory

The strategic planning seminar was thoughtfully crafted and executed exploration into the topic at hand. The instructor used a creative approach and extensive experience to deliver on the goals of the class.

-Michael Bamonti, Loyola University Maryland

The seminar on strategic planning was very informative. The instructor offered a concise look into types of strategies and supporting matrices which can be used to plan for competitive advantage in resource planning, product development, and more importantly, life.

-Belinda Edwards, The MITRE Corporation

After attending the seminar I fell more self-aware and prepared in dealing with business decisions. Prior to this session I would say I did not consciously consider strategy on a daily basis and will now make it part of my daily practice.

-Eric Fischer, RSM US LLP

I appreciate that the seminar really encouraged me to think about myself - how I make decisions, what my leadership style is, and what my own core values are. I think being more self-aware will make me a better leader.

-Todd Studney, Director of Finance, Healthcare for the Homeless

The seminar took the fundamentals of leadership and packaged it into a thoughtful tool that can be used in a practical manner in the workplace.
