LeadershipAdvantageSM— Developing Team-Oriented Leaders
The Tauber Institute expands students' expertise and prepares them to take on roles of greater responsibility. In today's demanding environment, superb individual performance must also be accompanied by team leadership qualities. Tauber's LeadershipAdvantage Program develops successful team members who move into the fast lane and are able to lead throughout the enterprise.
The LeadershipAdvantage Program consists of a series of eleven intensive modules or workshops in which students are required to participate during their first year in the Tauber program. These modules provide methodical and comprehensive preparation to maximize individual and team performance on the summer team project. The modules are typically held on weekday evenings (and occasional Saturdays) and are led by renowned industry experts.
LeadershipAdvantage provides a continuous and
in-depth program that includes:
