From the Program Director, Michael Wiederman, PhD

I’m excited to share this unique opportunity that represents the culmination of 7 years of iterative development of leadership development programming for individuals at varied levels of professional responsibility and experience. I was a clinical psychology professor for the first 20 years of my career, so psychology is the lens I bring to most of my work in professional development.  To me, leadership development is nearly synonymous with growth of emotional intelligence.  So instead of learning to read a balance sheet, negotiate a contract, or create a strategic plan, the focus of this program is developing the central tool for success as a leader – you!  I hope you decide to join us in this endeavor, in which case I look forward to getting to know the you of now and who you will become.
