Interpersonal Dynamics Weekend Lab: Leadership from the Inside Out

Interpersonal Dynamics Weekend Lab: Leadership from the Inside Out

Immerse yourself in a “T-group” weekend lab focused on interpersonal dynamics, real-time feedback, and effective leadership behaviors.

Being a successful leader in today’s interdependent and global workplace requires a broad range of interpersonal skills — from productively engaging with others and communicating clearly to exchanging influence and connecting across differences. Interpersonal Dynamics Weekend Lab: Leadership from the Inside Out gives you a personalized, intimate, and safe setting where you can take risks, create openness, and lead with authenticity.

Over the course of one intensive weekend you’ll be introduced to the power of the “T-group” learning methodology designed to increase self-awareness and interpersonal effectiveness. Two Stanford-trained facilitators will guide 12 participants as they learn more about themselves and how to lead from the inside out. It’s a training lab for creating more productive, professional, influential, and personal relationships.
