Executive Education offers courses in leadership and managerial skills

The Barowsky School of Business (BSB) is offering a series of Executive Education courses this spring aimed at company managers and directors, small and medium-sized business owners, and entrepreneurs looking to gain specific skills that will enable them to advance in their careers and grow their businesses.

BSB’s Executive Education offers courses in both leadership, and managerial skills for individuals and teams. Since launching in 2010, the program has enrolled more than 500 participants from a range of hospitals, businesses, and public and private organizations. Clients include Bank of Marin, Marin Municipal Water District, Kaiser Permanente, and the County of Marin.

Courses are led by BSB faculty, as well as business professionals with substantial “real world” experience. Classes are held on the Dominican campus in San Rafael, as well as at locations in both Marin and Sonoma counties.

•    April 6-June 22: Coaching Inside Organizations. This program blends classroom instruction and workplace training focused on leveraging emotional intelligence (EI) to improve employee performance. Lectures and role-play scenarios teach the key concepts of performance coaching. Participants then return to their offices with specific assignments to apply the coaching concepts with direct reports. After a month, participants return to the classroom to review their experiences and refine plans.

•    April 13- June 8: Making of Visionary Leaders. Participants enhance their ability to think strategically, become more emotionally savvy, and take a broader and more effective view of the organization. Each of the eight one-day sessions focuses on a different leadership skill – from communication to conflict resolution - and includes hands-on learning techniques requiring measurable outcomes.

•    April 24- June 5: Supervisory Skills for this Modern World. This three-session program is designed to help supervisors anticipate and overcome personnel challenges and address organizational priorities in the workplace.  The course blends classroom instruction with in-the-workplace application and small group discussions led by executive consultants.
