The theme is “Leading and Influencing” and the institute will be held October 18-20, 2018, in the Elliot School of International Affairs. Training will include practical skills for leading and inspiring your teams. Educational sessions will address such topics as:
  • Developing a vision and setting strategic goals

  • Motivating and mentoring colleagues

  • Dealing with difficult colleagues

  • Setting and managing performance expectations

  • Facing and overcoming crises

This leadership institute is designed to grow your leadership capacity and strengthen your ability to influence others. Seasoned executives have designed and will lead the curriculum, which is targeted for department chairs, division chiefs, center directors, and other higher education faculty or professional staff overseeing teams. GW faculty and senior leaders will join a talented team of leaders with more than 50 years of administrative leadership experience to deliver the curriculum.
