2021 WICT Virtual Premier Management Development Series

WICT Midwest is excited to announce the return of the Virtual Premier Management Development Series in 2021!

Focusing on the Touchstones of Leadership, this program supports participants wherever they may be on their leadership journey. Participants will experience a comprehensive development program focused on self-awareness, building a stronger leadership skillset and developing practical tools to apply these new skills.

This series explores what it takes to be an effective and impactful leader and supports participants’ development through both learning sessions and peer-to-peer coaching groups. The program content will be tailored to meet the needs of emerging leaders with limited people management experience, as well as more tenured, seasoned leaders.

To ensure the highest value for all, participants will be allocated to classes where their peers have a similar level of leadership experience and tenure ensuring that learning content and facilitated discussions are customized to meet the needs of each class
