The classroom-based pedagogies are not always impactful enough to create real change in a world that is more complex and volatile. New technologies are also helping to create other avenues for development as well as new ways to measure impact. Successful organizations are now using custom development programs as a source of competitive differentiation and expect more from their partners, as well as their talent.
Eller Executive Education recognizes this change and has developed the following core design principles to help you tackle your most difficult developmental needs:
Development and organizational goals come first in the way we design our programs. Only once we are confident we have gotten this right, we can focus on selecting the right methods, media, and content.
Taking part in our program means that we are both committed to finding a direct application to the work executives are doing or will be undertaking. We make sure that all of our sessions have a direct and relevant application to the lives and workplace of your executives.
We are not happy to design with the short-term impact in mind. Our designers will be thinking about the culture you want, long-term organizational goals, and marketplace challenges you face. Our task will then be to create a program that will allow you and your organization to change for the best.
Your talent can be your competitive advantage. Our role is to help you retain talent and help employees to thrive. That is why we think of development as a journey and not a series of events. Our program design will also engage participants to develop those who work around them, turning your talent into agents of organizational development.
Our faculty can help your front-line leaders as well as your most senior executives. We design with all of those learning communities in mind and can cost effectively help your talent development strategy across all levels – executives, high potentials, directors, and managers. We can also work with you to refresh, innovate, and streamline your talent development plan.
