This is a 5 module program that can be delivered in its entirety or selectively:

The Loyola Difference

The Advanced Leadership Development Program encourages learning within an action oriented environment where personal values are emphasized and ethical approaches to leadership and business decisions are key. Participants’ leadership skills will be developed 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.
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.
