More than ever before, emerging leaders must learn and deploy core leadership and management skills, develop a broad strategic perspective, take their leadership skills to the next level and expand their professional and personal networks. Adel Gamar brings Harvard University developed leadership training to us for a three-day course on what skills up-and-coming executives, directors and managers need to lead most effectively.
The program is ideal for aspiring young professionals who are:
- looking to increase their leadership skills in line with organizational and strategic perspectives.
- taking on additional managerial responsibilities.
- seeking to be effective in their organization.
Presented over two sessions, participants will learn concepts and build key skills in five areas including leadership, negotiation and collaboration. The TCYP Emerging Leaders Suite requires participants to complete pre-programming work and attend both sessions.
Leadership Decision Making: Optimizing Organizational Performance
This module will offer important insights into leadership based on scientific discoveries about decision making. The goal of the module is to teach emerging leaders various skills to become effective “decision architects” — leaders who can design optimal decision making environments within their organizations and improve overall organizational performance.
Tough decisions are the essence of leadership. Using the latest research, collaborative discussions, and real-time activities, TCYP participants will have the opportunity to examine both the scientific basis for and the practical aspects of judgment and decision making. Participants will also learn how to build lasting leadership skills that incorporate this knowledge.
This module will focus on five areas that allow for optimization of organizational performance:
- Reducing decision biases
- Understanding the role of emotion in decision making
- Designing smart accountability systems for judgment and decision making
- Gaining support for decisions
- Managing information overflow
During the sessions, participants will also discuss leadership challenges and strategies, enhance their communication skills, build peer support and expand their professional and personal networks.
