Executive Program in Leadership: The Effective Use of Power

Develop a leadership style and an action plan tailored to your personal objectives that inspire innovation in your team, your company, and the world.

The Executive Program in Leadership begins with a pre-program questionnaire on leadership style sent to your team and finishes with a personalized 100-day action plan you create to keep you accountable and increase your success.

In the classroom, you will interact with Stanford GSB faculty and peers from around the globe. You will explore the sources and uses of power, learn new methods for developing personal influence through collaboration, and come to understand the role of coaching in empowering your teams.

Throughout the week, you will use the results of the questionnaire and your new insights to develop a leadership plan tailored to your objectives and the needs of your company.
