Applied Leadership Workshops

Organizations that outperform their competition in any given industry have discovered that successful professional learning and development must include opportunities for just-in-time “learning in the flow of work”, where professionals are able to acquire knowledge and skills precisely when they are needed and seamlessly integrate them into their workflows.

Studies have consistently shown that just-in-time professional development leads to:

  • Improved and increased productivity
  • More personalized and contextualized learning experience
  • Improved problem-solving abilities
  • Adaptability in today’s fast-paced business environment
  • Improved cultures of learning

It is in this vein that USC Marshall Executive Education has designed and curated our Applied Leadership Workshops to build the critical competencies and capabilities necessary for successful leadership through practical skill-building activities and direct application best practices, allowing participants to learn in the flow of work and immediately apply the knowledge and strategies in their professional environments.

Our Applied Leadership Workshops are formatted as on-demand, targeted micro-modules, that focus exclusively on one specific skill or ability and grant participants focused content at their own time, and in less time, to address their specific learning needs.

DIGITAL BADGE: Participants who complete these workshops earn USC digital credentials recognizing their competency in and ability to apply the stated skills and abilities.

GROUP PRICING and SUBSCRIPTIONS: We also offer group pricing for corporations interested in enrolling teams of three or more in our programs for individuals.

“I am so grateful to have gotten to opportunity to take Understanding Finance and Accounting for Non-Financial Managers. The professors were clear and passionate about what they were teaching and made the sessions engaging and relevant even though I’m out of the practice. I took away tangible learnings that I can apply right away to my role and appreciate that the professors are available to answer questions even after the course ended.”

“The Inclusive Leadership program was a welcome compliment to work that I am engaged in with nonprofit consulting. Communities are demanding more diversity and inclusion from their boards of directors. They want representation from people directly connected to their cause. The professor was able to communicate to me personally in the program was a greater recognition of empathy, trust and implicit bias. The breakout sessions were expertly coordinated so that each of us had an opportunity to engage and express our views and learn from one another.”

District Manager, Albertsons Vons Pavilions

“The Food Industry Executive Program was more than I could have imagined. The information and insight that was provided over only four days was unbelievable. What I thought I had learned over my years of leadership was completely taken to another level. The in-depth way that they make you look at your leadership style and how to get the best out of your people is absolutely amazing. I would recommend this course to any leader wanting to enhance their leadership skills for today and the future.”
