Leaders are often promoted because they succeed in a specific area or industry. Excelling at the next level, however, requires different skills essential to an organization’s reputation – relationship-building, conflict management, strategic thinking, and media and presentation skills, to name a few.

Our Leadership & Reputation Academy is an intense, Executive Education course aimed at new and emerging leaders from around the region. Some of the topics include leadership vs. management, presentation skills, crisis communication, and emotional IQ. The program will include lectures, group presentations and role-playing, and draw on materials from a variety of respected sources, including Harvard Business Review, bestselling business authors, successful corporate executives, and STF’s own time-tested, proprietary content.

Registration is now open! The next Academy will begin Wednesday, August 30, 2023 with in-person classes. Click for more information and complete schedule.
