“The Leadership Essentials program was a real breakthrough in my self-development journey at work. Not only did it enable me to become aware of unconscious bias that we all tend to have in our professional behaviors, but it was also a real eye opener on business patterns. The program encourages you to think out of the box and go to the extra mile on topics such as emotional intelligence, change management, self-awareness and team dynamics. What impressed me was the ability of both Professors Joel Brockner and Sarah Brazaitis to build paths between research theory and grounded practical work experiences and most importantly go beyond common thinking. The interactions between seasoned professionals during the break-out sessions were also adding considerable value to everyone’s experience. The Columbia team was very helpful in making this journey as smooth as possible — from the registration to the class delivery in the context of the pandemic. If you are looking to embrace change at all levels and nurture your growth mindset, you can’t miss this program.”
