Every organization faces a unique set of opportunities and challenges. Weatherhead’s Custom Executive Education Programs focus on high potential employee development and offer a designed-from-scratch educational experience specifically tailored to your organization’s needs. The program design process draws upon the expertise of our faculty and the input of your key leaders to co-create content that is relevant and has immediate application in the workplace. Evaluation and measurement of results are integral parts of every program.
Designing the Process
Weatherhead recommends designing the following components into every custom program:
- A tailored curriculum that reflects your organization’s current business issues and challenges
- Senior management sponsorship and involvement
- Messages from the top that explain how this program or initiative is linked to the priorities of the business
- Clear communication of senior managers' expectations of participants both during and after the experience
- Long-term reinforcement after completion of program and opportunities to experiment with new behaviors, skills, or knowledge
- Executive Coaching to support sustainable behavior change
We use a strengths-based approach demonstrated in academic studies to help individuals and organizations achieve significant and enduring growth and development.
