Past Webinars

Robert A. Burgelman, Edmund W. Littlefield Professor of Management; Executive Director of the Stanford Executive Program

For most alumni of the Stanford Executive Program (SEP), the six weeks they spent at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) was the learning and networking experience that transformed their future. Taught by more than 30 Stanford GSB faculty and a distinguished lineup of guest speakers, SEP is Stanford's flagship advanced management program, equipping senior executives with the knowledge, relationships, and tools necessary to drive results at the highest levels of global management.

The ability to function effectively within a hierarchy is a crucial factor in managerial and personal success. Many people, however, struggle with “authority issues” that make adopting certain roles and positions in their organization difficult for them.

In this complimentary 60-minute webinar, Stanford Graduate School of Business Professor Deborah Gruenfeld will draw on the art of acting and the science of psychology to show participants how their nonverbal behaviors affect their status and power. Participants will also learn how to improve their ability to move flexibly among different hierarchical roles.

Ilya Strebulaev, Associate Professor of Finance

In today's competitive global economy, the role of chief financial officer has expanded, demanding a dynamic blend of finance expertise, strategic thinking, and leadership skills. The Stanford Graduate School of Business Executive Education has created a unique new program, The Emerging CFO: Strategic Financial Leadership Program (ECFO) to provide senior finance executives with insights and tools to make better strategic financial decisions, build strategic partnerships with key stakeholders, and assess their own personal leadership styles to become more effective leaders.
