Strategic Leadership Series

January 16, 2024 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CST

The Strategic Leadership Series (SLS) is the comprehensive Leadership Development program hosted by the Lubar College of Business- Executive Programs. This outstanding program is designed to help upper-level managers and directors develop and sharpen their strategic leadership skills. The experience provides interactive hands-on case challenges, simulations, and networking with facilitators and fellow cohort participants. The “flipped classroom” model has participants in charge of their own learning and reinforces the application of new skills to specific situations provided by the participating executives.

Topics include:

Emotional Intelligence • Personal Leadership Brand • Strategy Formulation and Execution • Leading Change • Financial Decision-Making Simulation • Coaching and Communicating • Leading High-Performance Teams • Developing People • Effective Business Presentations • Innovation • Leading and Managing Across Cultures • International Business Case Challenge Simulation • Leading at the C-level

The program is delivered in a mix of in-person and online learning over a four-month period, beginning in person on January 16th, 2024, at the Lubar College of Business on the UWM campus, and culminating March 19th, 2024, online.

Your development will be accelerated through our strong emphasis on applied learning – acquiring knowledge, practicing its application in a neutral environment, and receiving constructive feedback. In addition to robust classroom discussion, you will learn through business simulations, case studies, and an individualized job-related project that you will work on over the duration of the series. In your project, you will identify a specific challenge from your workplace, create a strategy to address that challenge, and take steps to implement your strategy to make an immediate impact in your organization, increasing your return on investment in the program.
