Executive Leadership: Accelerated Development

Build the capabilities you need to accelerate your transformation into the leader you aspire to be.

The cultivation of high potential talent needs support, strategies, and new tools in order to successfully take on new, 21st century leadership roles. Rotman’s Executive Leadership: Accelerated Development program is a three month long engagement that delivers significant value for both you and a current and important work for your organization.

Unlike most leadership programs for this audience, Executive Leadership: Accelerated Development is driven by the goals and challenges of participants. Ideally your workplace is supportive and involved as the strongest results will come from the real work you do between modules, back at the office. We provide high-potential leaders like you with new ways of thinking, acting and leading their projects. Your business provides a focused challenge.

During the program you will work on both a personal leadership development plan and a current challenge from your workplace that could benefit from improved leadership and expert support throughout.  Our faculty, industry experts in their own right, devote a significant amount of time over the three months to supporting each participant individually, advising and coaching them as they apply new leadership skills to drive current work projects and challenges to successful outcomes.

Address your biggest challenges.

Rotman’s Executive Leadership: Accelerated Development will ensure that you are better able to create value for your organization and are on track for greatly accelerated personal development. By the end of the program you will have improved specific and tangible leadership skills such as leading meetings, presenting to large groups, and more effectively relating and connecting with colleagues and customers. Perhaps most importantly, successful completion of the program will lead to a greater sense of agency and motivation – you will demonstrate greater and more meaningful and strategic initiative and accountability.

Alongside the value of accelerated personal development, your organization will benefit tangibly through significant progress on an existing work challenge, creating an additional return on investment for both.
