CEW is offering a scholarship to a senior executive woman to study Interpersonal Dynamics for High-Performance Executives at Stanford Graduate School of Business, California in 2018.

About the course

The ability to forge strong relationships with others is crucial to becoming a more effective leader in today’s complex, global, and highly interdependent organisations. The Interpersonal Dynamics course at Stanford is designed to help executives develop this ability, particularly with people who are different than they are. Participants observe how individual behaviour affects others in real time, practice key leadership skills with peer feedback, and learn to connect across differences.
