1st Quarter Focus

Leadership Development & Organizational Change

The 1st quarter of the MBA program was one of personal reflection for the program participants - both as a leader and the agent of change of their company.

The program activities revolved around understanding leadership traits, the various roles of a leader, and the pitfalls most leaders face as they lead their company. They also focused on facilitating and leading organizational change, while managing conflict.

Each activity forced the participants to confront their way of thinking and behaviors. Through discussions and practical tools, the participants were exposed to new perspectives and ways of doing great business!
