Spring into new ways of learning

2021 is the time to sharpen your business and leadership skills

Over the course of 2020 much has changed in our work and daily lives. We’ve appreciated navigating through these unprecedented times with you, as we all adjust to new ways of living and working.

A few months ago we wrote about the impact of shifting online. As we move into 2021, we will continue to offer our programs online for the next several months. While we cannot currently offer in-person delivery, we are committed to ensuring we provide engaging and impactful learning experiences in a dynamic virtual environment.

Since shifting to a virtual delivery format last March, we’ve had excellent feedback from our participants. By offering our programs online, we have been able to provide greater flexibility and a more customized approach to professional development. Our learners have repeatedly informed us that they have been pleasantly surprised by the remote learning experience. Many say they’ve found our faculty to be just as engaging in the online environment as they were in the classroom and they’ve appreciated the interactive benefits of our learning platform. Through the virtual environment we have seen increased diversity in our cohorts, have enabled greater interaction amongst the learners, and facilitated engaging experiential learning activities. We have enjoyed the opportunity to learn and teach in new ways. The past several months have reinforced our belief that today’s business leaders are agile, adaptable and resilient.

If you’re thinking about sharpening your business and leadership skills, we encourage you to explore what we have to offer this winter and spring. With accessible pricing and increased flexibility, we’re confident you’ll find the program that will build your leadership capacity at this crucial time. Whether you’re looking to enhance your communication skills, increase your financial literacy, or become a more effective negotiator, we have a program for you. If one of your goals for 2021 is to ensure your organization is poised to pivot, our Innovator’s Mindset program may be right for you. If you’d like to empower others to reach their full potential, consider registering for our Leader as Coach program. And if 2020 has left you feeling burned out, our Burnout: Prevention and Recovery program may be just what you need.

If governance is of more interest to you, we are launching our second offering of our Private Equity Governance Program – the first program of its kind in Canada! Whether you are an entrepreneur looking for advisory support to take your organization to the next level, or a potential director seeking an opportunity to guide a new venture, you will benefit from this unique program.

We are particularly excited about the launch of our newly redesigned Strategic Leadership Development Program. Redesigning this program to better meet the changing needs of our business leaders was one of our highlights of 2020. We are pleased to be working with our inaugural cohort of learners, who are actively delving into the program content and beginning to prepare their Action Learning Projects. New dates for 2021 have just been released. If you would like to shift your focus from day-to-day tasks to thinking more strategically while simultaneously becoming a more effective, resilient and dynamic leader, please reach out. We’d be happy to put you in touch with any of our faculty who can provide you with further information about this career-changing program.

We can also offer in-house or customized learning solutions for your organization, specifically designed for you and your colleagues. We’ll work with you to conduct a needs analysis, design a program specifically tailored to your organization’s unique needs, deliver it in a format that is most beneficial for you, and follow up with value-added components and resources. Your organization will gain from relevant learning that your team can directly apply in the situations they face daily.

We hope you will join us as we continue working through this era of innovation and rapid change. The world needs bold leaders like you who continually seek ways to improve, to learn and to envision a new future of business.
