Leading the Growth Enterprise Update
Posted 9.21.06Weatherhead's new executive program for leaders of growing businesses will be postponed to begin in January 2007. Application deadline is December 15, 2006.
Applications continue to flow in for Weatherhead's new program, Leading the Growth Enterprise: An Executive Experience for Leaders of Growing Businesses. The program will run from January - June 2007.
Leading the Growth Enterprise is a 6-month intensive learning and business coaching process focused on developing entrepreneurs with the knowledge and skills necessary to improve results and take their existing business to the next level of achievement and success. The heart of the program centers on achieving sustainable growth.
Curriculum includes 10 in-person group sessions on site at Case that are designed as intensive, fast-track learning in leadership development and business development strategies, as well as special sessions that focus on legal, tax and ethical issues. It also includes an action learning project which the entrepreneur selects based on a particular business obstacle or opportunity. Throughout the 6-month process, business leaders will receive personal business coaching from an experienced coach, consultant or practitioner who offers extensive business planning and problem-solving expertise. Based on Weatherhead’s success with action learning in other programs, including the Executive MBA, this process is projected to yield a value of 5-10 times the overall program investment to the entrepreneur’s business.
Due to the intensive learning culture and one-on-one coaching process within the Program, enrollment is limited and filling up fast. For more information and to apply on-line, please visit http://weatherhead.case.edu/exed/ent/, or contact Jennifer Carr at 216/368-0017.
