Interpersonal Dynamics for High-Performance Executives

Interpersonal Dynamics for High-Performance Executives

Hone your interpersonal skills and transition from being a good leader to a remarkable leader in six emotionally charged, academically rigorous days.

Immersive. Experiential. Insightful. Interpersonal Dynamics for High-Performance Executives delivers a highly personalized learning experience with the ultimate goal of creating more productive professional relationships.

The program includes lectures from the Stanford faculty who pioneered and developed the course and “T-group” sessions in which small, intimate groups of 12 experience personalized facilitation from Stanford faculty and executive coaches.

Held on the Stanford campus, this program offers a unique environment where you can disconnect, talk openly, and reach beyond your comfort zone. With other senior executives in your T-groups, you’ll learn through experiential-based activities and improve your abilities to authentically engage, communicate, and influence.

It’s truly a unique opportunity to hone the essential soft skills needed to ascend the corporate ladder and transition from being a good leader to being a remarkable one.
