About the Program

Leading Strategic Growth, a 6-week executive development program, delivers participants the ability to gain greater command of their company’s needs and the skill to identify and execute new growth opportunities in a fast-moving and competitive landscape.

The key to organizational success is to develop an enterprise capable of generating achievement-oriented strategies and adapting and improving those strategies as the environment changes. The Leading Strategic Growth action-oriented approach addresses the conditions and challenges executives face—because the true measure of a leadership development program’s effectiveness is how well the learning can be applied to solutions in the work environment.
