MBA electives have a tough gig, coming late in the day when projects are on our minds. So it was refreshing to find myself utterly engrossed and entertained for three days by Leadership.
The class was a great mix of students – some familiar, some new – who had a breadth and depth of experience to share. Dr Kevin Page really got the most out of us with an engaging mix of theory, discussion and insights from his development as a leader. Everyone really opened up, which was no surprise given the topic! The most enduring insights come when theories can be related back to the personal, and this group had the spark needed to bring the theory to life.
I came away from this weekend with some great stories to share and some new ideas to develop my leadership thinking – not to mention some new friends I can ask for advice.
