New Leadership Infusion Program Offered at Hartford Campus
A new noncredit program, open to all Rensselaer graduate students, is being introduced at the Hartford campus. The five-day Leadership Infusion Program is designed to complement a master’s education with critical leadership and interpersonal skills to enhance success in the classroom and beyond. In this program, participants will increase self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and potential for growth; gain the confidence needed to deliver outstanding presentations and lead projects; and earn a Leadership Certificate upon completion.

Topics to be covered include:
  • Leading Change: How does a person with significant scientific, engineering, and/or managerial competence make a successful transition to being an effective leader?
  • Emotional and Social Intelligence, Appreciative Leadership: What is the path for leveraging the strengths of your colleagues for innovative and successful performance?
  • Coaching, Managing Conflict, Leading Teams: How do you become more comfortable and skilled with the interpersonal challenges of leading a team or organization?

The schedule for this five-day program will be presented as a series of one- and two-day sessions, with all sessions meeting from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Rensselaer’s Hartford campus. The Fall 2009 Leadership Infusion Program session dates are Oct. 22 and 23, Nov. 12 and 13, and Dec. 4. The program cost, including all materials, is $4,000 for the general public, but special pricing for Rensselaer graduate students is $2,000. (Please note that this is a noncredit program and will not count as credit toward a master’s degree.)
