Leadership

Our leadership programs are intended to address leaders who are currently responsible for executing strategies and managing shifting priorities presented by organizational leaders. This role requires capabilities of both effective performance management of team projects, as well as leadership skills to drive change and quickly adapt teams to new demands. We also recognize the increasing pressure on budgets even as the number and complexity of projects grow. The expectation is that graduates of our leadership programs will have a strong sense of how to lead projects, teams, peers, and themselves.

3D Team Leadership 

Bradley L. Kirkman and T.Brad Harris

The latest book by Bradley L. Kirkman and T.Brad Harris present a dynamic new model for maximizing team performance. Previous books have treated teams as groups of people working interdependently, an approach that overlooks two crucial components: the individuals who make up the team and the subgroups that form within and between teams.
