Executive Education

Leadership & Management Programs

Leadership Programs

Smith offers no open-enrollment programs. Our skill is in partnering with specific organizations to create interactive, practical learning experiences that truly meet the needs of your enterprise. Share your strategic imperatives and organizational challenges and work with us to incorporate your data, executives and values into a program that will help to propel your team members to excellent performance.

We will ask the following questions:

What problem are you trying to solve?

Perhaps you want to develop global strategic knowledge across your company or seek enhanced critical thinking and problem-solving skills at every level in your organization. Maybe some of your senior leaders struggle with self-regulation and other soft skills. Do you wish your high-potential managers could collaborate more effectively to seize opportunity and manage risk? Could your new supervisors benefit from a basic business management education? Whether you are contemplating a big merger or acquisition; seeking to improve your operational processes; or wish to make better use of technology, Smith can help you.

What can you share about your target learners?

We work with people at every level in organizations all over the world. Start-ups and small businesses; mid-cap companies; government agencies and large associations; and Fortune 1000 companies all boast managers and executives who have benefited from Smith executive education. We can work with you to prime your learning-agile team members for their executive education experience. Talk to us about pre- and post- tests, assessments and Action Learning Projects designed to ensure that you can see maximum return on your investment in training.
