Leadership and Management Development

Managing at Yale

Develop your people. Inspire breakthrough performance.

To lead your team in ways that engage and inspire breakthrough performance—and develop the capabilities of your staff members—requires critical knowledge, skills, and attributes. That’s why the University developed its signature manager development program, Managing at Yale.

Managing at Yale, is more than a training curriculum. It sets in motion the fundamentals needed to support a work culture that values diverse experiences and points of view—and thrives on respect and collaboration. Through interactive and engaging presentations, real-life scenarios, and peer interactivity, you will learn about leadership principles, labor relations, diversity and inclusiveness, and much more.

The first three courses encompassing the Managing at Yale program are currently offered online over 9 months and will empower you to effectively deliver on Yale’s leadership expectations. These courses–Essentials, Great Manager and Managing for Results–cover a range of topics from Ethics, Emotional Intelligence, Labor Relations, HR to Diversity & Inclusion, DiSC, how to effectively manage both yourself and your team, and the 5 Behaviors of a Cohesive Team. Each course runs for 5-6 weeks with 7-8 week breaks in between. The last two courses, Extraordinary Leader and Advancing the Extraordinary Leader, are delivered in-person and provide insight through a 360-degree leadership assessment, development plan, and coach, to further develop your managerial and leadership skills.
