The Broad College of Business is partnering with Michigan State University Athletics to present “Building Winning Teams: A Quest for Excellence,” a three-day program designed to help business professionals develop sustainable leadership and team effectiveness skills.
Offered by the college’s Executive Development Programs from May 15–17, the program brings together MSU coaches and faculty from the Broad College’s Department of Management for sessions on leadership, team building, and creating winning cultures.
The program is tailored for high-potential business professionals who lead a team or contribute to their team’s success, and teams from the same organization are encouraged to attend. Participants will gain critical skills in engaging, enlisting, and fostering effective collaboration; creating a team culture of adaptability and innovation; making quick decisions in hyper-competitive environments; and positioning teams for long-term success. Sessions will be held at the Henry Center for Executive Development and at the university’s athletic facilities, where participants will apply their new knowledge in team-based activities.
“Future business performance will increasingly stem from an organization’s ability to field high performance teams,” says Stefanie Lenway, Eli and Edythe L. Broad Dean. “This program will develop the skills needed for high-performing teams, benefiting both individuals and their organizations.”
Management professors teaching this program include Don Conlon, Cynthia Devers, John Hollenbeck, Gerry McNamara, and Fred Morgeson. The MSU coaches leading live discussions include Tom Anastos, Mark Dantonio, Cathy George, Tom Izzo, Suzy Merchant, and Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll.
