As a top ranked business school, the client is known worldwide for their innovative education methodology and research. The Financial Times, the world’s leading provider of business school rankings, consistently ranks the client at the top of the list.
The university’s Essentials of Leadership course, a critical course requirement within the Business Management and Leadership program, is designed to help students develop the fundamental management skills and build on critical leadership principles.
The business course is structured to support students as they cultivate their own personal, authentic leadership style. The ultimate goal of the course is to build a critical foundation for a broad and diverse network of leaders and role models.
The Project Outline
Establishing essential leadership qualities requires an ongoing personal drive to develop these principles over an extended period of time. In fact the client found that the first 2 years of a person’s career is critical to the development of their essential leadership skills.
Therefore the principles learned during the Essentials of Leadership course must be continuously fostered and developed after graduation in order to have the most impact.
In order to foster leaders and grow social capital, the client knew they needed to find a way to support graduates with their growing leadership skills during the first two years of their career. In addition, the client wanted to prove to the corporate world that their graduates were not only well educated, but also possessed unique leadership abilities.
The client knew that in order to establish strong leaders, they needed to reinforce the leadership principles taught during the Essentials Leadership course. The client came to Mindmarker requesting an extensive 2-year training reinforcement program that focused on 3 main reinforcement objectives: growing their leadership skills, fostering their personal development, and solidifying their authentic leadership style.
The Results of the 2-Year Program
