How to Approach Your Coursework

  • Each of the 7 online sections should take less than 60 minutes to complete, including the time to complete workbook reflection exercises.

  • You will gain the greatest value by putting thoughtful consideration into each of the workbook exercises – this is where theory is put into action – and giving yourself plenty of time to apply the work in each section before moving on to the next.

Every extraordinary leader we have served tells the same story. At some point in their journey, they faced the painful reality that the “business side of their work” would be an endless repetition of disappointing setbacks if they didn’t get better at the “people side of their work.”
