The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) is an 8-month certificate program that provides a deep dive into leadership and its personal meaning in each participant’s life. All Executive MBA programs at Seattle University begin with this unique leadership experience.
In small class settings and with one-to-one executive coaching, you’ll have the opportunity to discover how you’re perceived, who you want to be as a leader and what leadership means in your life. You’ll also gain a deeper knowledge of leadership, greater self-confidence and a keen awareness of the ethics and values that guide executive decisions. You’ll come away with a strong appreciation of how your actions as a leader can affect positive change in your organization and the world.
Most universities offer leadership courses, but few focus on identifying your voice and vision as a leader the way the ELP does. In the process, you’ll become more influential as a leader. You’ll work with an executive coach to shape your own agenda and get unbiased feedback on your goals. Through rigorous coursework, application and time for reflection, you’ll deepen your leadership perspective and skills. Through a social justice project of your choosing, you’ll put your leadership into action on an issue of importance to you.
The ELP includes a 3-day residential retreat, advanced experiential learning, team projects, outreach activities and one-on-one executive coaching. Classes meet once a month in two- to three-day modules. Meeting days are typically Thursday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
ELP is designed for professionals in business and health care, it’s recommended for:
