SLP Level 2

Level 2 of the Strategic Leadership Program is a suite of offerings designed for UW managers, directors and other executives who operate in complex environments and must be successful in multiple areas, including strategic planning, organizational change and performance management.

Current SLP Level 2 offerings are shown below.

Human-Centered Design for Innovation and Creative Problem Solving

Human-centered design starts with people and ends with innovative solutions to meet their needs. When you understand the intended audience, and design from their perspective, not only do you arrive at unexpected answers, but you’ll come up with ideas that they will embrace. This two-part workshop includes additional reading and methodological study materials and explores HCD methodology through a specific process made of four phases: 1) inspiration, 2) ideation, 3) prototyping and 4) implementation.

Upcoming offerings:
Thursday and Tuesday, January 26 & 31, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


SLP Level 2: Core Strengths — Results Through Relationships

This intensive experiential workshop provides UW managers, directors and other executives with a practical framework and proven tools for building a culture steeped in collaboration, ownership and initiative. Prior to the workshop, participants take the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) and their results are then contextualized within a Motivational Value System. With this knowledge, participants learn to deploy different strengths in working with others and dealing with conflict on their teams and also complete an Action Planner for getting better results through relationships.

Upcoming offerings:
Wednesday and Thursday, February 8 & 9, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
