Leadership Development Initiative Overview

Leading in a time of crisis. Influencing people to succeed in achieving a common goal. Understanding how to tap into the strengths of others. Today’s leaders face a range of new leadership challenges.

The Stern Leadership Development Initiative helps students prepare to meet these challenges by providing a personalized leadership development framework that empowers students to continually evolve as effective leaders who create value for business and society.

The Stern Leadership Development Initiative is made up of three pillars that provide a unique balance of active learning and practical application.

Leadership Foundation lays the groundwork for effective leadership by giving students the chance learn and practice core leadership competencies through specialized workshops and classes.

Leadership Personalized uses individual assessments and one-on-one leadership coaching to help students apply knowledge and skills they’ve gained to create a customized action plan to achieve their personal goals.

Leadership in Action gives students the opportunity to hone their skills through hands-on leadership experiences designed to challenge their capacity to lead and influence.
