“Simply put, Stanford University’s Executive Leadership Development Program is a game-changer. The course will teach you things about yourself that you were never cognizant of prior to the sessions, while simultaneously challenging you to think outside the box as to your approach as a leader. You’ll share a classroom with some of the brightest minds from myriad industries, blending best practices and developing skills that you’ll take with you for the rest of your career.”

“ELD was a life-changing experience. It equipped me with both structured theories and practical skills, to think and engage, to strategize and execute. The authenticity, vulnerability, and trust the classmates share goes beyond the class and form lasting friendships and support. The knowledge, confidence, and community I gained have made me a better leader and a better person.”
