A unique blended-learning leadership development program sponsored by Penn State and the Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C), is offering a leadership experience that will give you the skills—and confidence—that you need.
IELOL is a four-step leadership development program. The program begins with a two-week IELOL online experience (July 18–29) designed to identify and focus attention on key leadership challenges at the participants’ organizations. The second step is an on-site immersive experience at Penn State (August 8–11) that enables the IELOL participant to develop specific leadership skills, styles, networks, and strategies for the emerging leader. A three-week online follow-up program (September 19–October 7) provides senior-level mentoring and consulting for the participants as they apply the newly-acquired skills and concepts in their local settings. The program culminates with a preconference workshop (November 16) at the annual Sloan Consortium ALN conference in Orlando. Learn more...
