Personal Leadership & Team Development
First Steps into Leadership
This immersive program helps first-time managers successfully make the transition from a great contributor to an effective leader who guides a high-achieving team.
Using blended delivery as a core learning technique, with learning transfer in mind, you will make an immediate impact through organizational challenges and problem-based learning. This program provides a supportive learning journey with sessions, activities, practical organizational challenges, data, self-study content, peer coaching, and faculty input spread across 16 weeks.
For each core topic and learning objective, you will follow Hult EF’s proven methodology: experience + framework + application. You will apply the concepts, frameworks, and experiences to an organizational challenge; outline future development; and demonstrate to yourself, program peers and your organization that your learning has been immediately applied.
