The Senior Executive Fellows program provides you with practical, effective tools that can help you:

  • identify and analyze the challenges and opportunities facing your organization, and master them politically, as well as technically
  • develop strategic plans of action using communication, negotiation and coalition-building skills
  • manage the tensions between long-term policy goals and short-term political pressures
  • create an organizational environment that is responsive to change, but also true to its purpose and tradition

The program does not teach answers to specific problems -- it provides a strategic approach to problem-solving. From the start, you'll take on a leadership role, discovering ways to look at issues from new perspectives. You'll learn how to generate a more diverse array of possible interpretations, and therefore, a wider range of possible solutions. Through classwork, group work, and individual study, you'll practice strategic analysis daily, until it becomes a natural, ingrained response.
