Professional & Organizational Development

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 include both online and classroom learning. The online platform The Learning Lab includes substantive leadership development content, while two intensive and distinct workshops, Core Strengths — Results Through Relationships and Leadership for a Global Perspective, are facilitated by experienced POD consultants.

The Learning Lab includes a subscription option for a complete Leadership Development Program powered by Percipio, Skillsoft’s online learning platform.

  • The Leadership Development Program is instructionally, functionally, and aesthetically designed to support accelerated learning of leadership principles, encourage effective recall of concepts, and facilitate dynamic workplace application.
  • While all courses are less than 60 minutes, with a maximum of 45 minutes of video-based instruction, each is broken down into 5-8 minute video segments to support single-concept microlearning.
  • Each course also features a reflective question for appropriate set-up, knowledge checks throughout the topics for optimal recall, and a final post-course assessment.
  • The instruction makes smart use of scenarios and behavioral demonstration for fully contextualized leadership development.

To encourage and facilitate workplace application, each course includes complementary resources, such as books and book summaries, to supplement the foundational course content. Learners also benefit from a variety of application tools, including facilitation guides, reflection exercises, and job aids.

Subscriptions run through 12/30/2020 and include unlimited access to The Learning Lab and all assets.
