UC Davis Executive Leadership Program prepares senior managers to adapt, thrive

By From page A6 | February 10, 2013

The UC Davis Executive Leadership Program begins March 14. Now in its 38th year, this seminar series provides senior-level leaders with innovative concepts to maintain their competitive edge and become catalysts for positive organizational change and growth.

This year’s program features 10 weeks of one-day seminars addressing the complex challenges executives face in today’s turbulent business climate.

The program begins by exploring assumptions about leadership communication and how leaders set the tone of their organizations. Additional seminars hone in on areas of leadership such as leadership through innovation, collaborative negotiation, leading change and ethical leadership. Case studies on leading with values and leading with strategy round out the series.

Seminars are led by business experts, including Karen Hull, associate vice chancellor of organizational excellence at UC Davis; Michelle Payne, an executive leadership coach; Darrell Chambliss, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Waste Connections Inc.; Robert Smith, president emeritus of Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania; and Gene Crumley, an executive leadership specialist.

The program will be offered from 1:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays, March 14 to May 16, at the Sutter Square Galleria, 2901 K St. in Sacramento. A short video illustrating the program is available on the UC Davis Extension website: www.extension.ucdavis.edu/executiveprogram. Apply online at extension.ucdavis.edu/execprog.
