Leading and Managing People was specifically created for executives transitioning from a technically based management position into a leadership role involving greater spans of control and cross-unit collaboration.
The results-oriented curriculum is specifically designed for professionals who require a better understanding of political undercurrents and power flow, and wish to improve their overall ability to communicate and influence within varying perspectives.
Participants must be fluent in English. Specifically, they should be comfortable with metaphoric speech. If this presents a problem, the University of Pennsylvania offers one- and two-week intensive English Language Programs (ELPs) to prepare for a productive week at Wharton.
To further leverage the value and impact of this program, we encourage companies to send cross-functional teams of executives to Wharton. We offer group enrollment benefits to companies sending four or more participants.
