Reflective Management Seminars

The Reflective Management seminars work as capstones to the program as a whole, with a focus on personal reflection and peer learning. We’ll discuss challenges we all face, both as managers, colleagues, and direct reports. And we’ll support one another in developing a clearer vision of who we want to be as managers.

Moments of personal reflection and group activities will provide participants with opportunities to work out their ideas and get feedback from others.

Through this series of workshops you will:

  • Grow your understanding of the knowledge, skills, and values necessary for good management,
  • Reflect on and better understand your own skills and values relevant to management,
  • Articulate a personal vision and/or goals for your own approach to management, and
  • Build strong professional connections.

  • Reflective Management II: Looking Back and Looking Forward, Ryan Jacoby, Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 9–11 a.m.
