Faculty Perspective

We are continuously evolving to meet new needs. The way people led in the last 10 years is not the same as it will be in the next 10. We teach the parts of the existing leadership canon that are still true while also helping leaders master what is new.”

Michael Useem, PhD William and Jacalyn Egan Professor of Management; Professor of Management; Director, Center for Leadership and Change Management; Editor, Wharton Leadership Digest, The Wharton School

There may be no more critical moment for professional development in our lifetimes. By choice or consequence, companies need their senior leaders to upskill now. They’re asking people to step up to new responsibilities in ways they haven’t had to before, and they can’t wait.”

Patti Williams, PhD Ira A. Lipman Associate Professor of Marketing, The Wharton School

Your mindset has such an important impact on your outcomes — you don’t want to anticipate or settle for insufficient results. You have to do well with your internal negotiations before you can do well with the external.”

Cade Massey, PhD Practice Professor, Operations, Information and Decisions, The Wharton School
