Leadership Residency

Leadership requires more than an analytical, cross-functional tool set. Leaders must have the emotional intelligence to guide stakeholder relationships, competence to exert power and influence wisely and ethically, confidence to make decisions with less-than-perfect information, and courage to embrace change.

The weeklong leadership residency – which takes place midway through the program – includes modules on formal and informal leadership, and a forum on corporate governance that focuses on creating effective relationships among executives, board members, shareholders, and employees.

The residency is held at the Charles F. Knight Executive Education and Conference Center on Washington University’s campus.
