Wharton faculty, led by Professor Nancy Rothbard, apply their field-based research and the latest strategic insights to help women leaders find clarity in their careers while mastering key business acumen skills for which Wharton is renowned: leadership, strategy, management, finance, innovation, and negotiation.
What sets this program for women executives apart is its strong focus on business acumen and leadership, combined with a practical approach to developing and honing these strategic skills.
Session topics include:
- Critical Thinking and Decision Making
- Emotional Intelligence
- Financial Acumen
- Leaning In: How Not to Fall Over
- Leadership and Teamwork
- How Top Women Succeed
Each afternoon, participants will break into small groups to review the day’s learnings and discuss how they can be put into practice. Wharton faculty and executive coaches oversee the sessions, providing real-time coaching and feedback for effective outcomes, and translating the practicum for participants to take back to the office.
Within this collegial forum, participants will establish the beginnings of a lifelong network of women executives — who often face similar decision points and possibilities along their career paths — which can become a rich resource of influential peers.
