LMDC Track 3
We can describe effective business ethics as consistently doing the right thing. However, determining what is right and what is wrong is often neither clear or easy. This is a dilemma that many managers face. In this program participants will use the MBTI and other business ethics models to explore the various ways we do business here at the University. This is a required program for Track Three participants
This course will take participants through Ken Blanchard's "Situational Leadership" Model using various "fictitious" scenarios. Course participants will learn various managerial styles and how they relate to others. This is a two-part course and participants are required to attend both sessions. This is a required course for Track Three participants.
|Creating and Maintaining an Effective and Diverse Workforce||
This seminar will provide participants guidance in developing and managing a diverse work environment. Participants will learn to implement effective recruitment strategies, succeed in a diverse environment, and manage EO-related differences and conflicts among staff members. This is a required course for Track 3 participants.
|Executive Presentation Skills||
( 2 part course)
"It's not what you say, but how you say it." That's an old cliche; however, there is a lot of truth in that statement. Leaders are constantly faced with communicating ideas, goals, proposals, and other pertinent information to a variety of audiences. It is imperative that today's leaders present information in a clear, confident and concise manner. This 2-module program will give participants an opportunity to develop professional presentation skills. Participants are required to attend both sessions to receive credit for this course. This is a required course for Track 3 participants.
Old Dominion University and the Commonwealth of Virginia are undergoing transitions which bring about change for all employees. The successful manager needs to understand how to manage change and guide staff through small and large-scale changes. This course will prepare managers to effectively deal with change, and new work habits essential for a radically changing world. This is a required course for Track Three participants.
|Reflection and Book Review||This session serves as a comprehensive look at the LMDC track and its effectiveness. It allows participants to provide feedback on what went well, what did not go so well, and to provide suggestions for revisions and future program additions/deletions. |
Each year a book is selected and provided as a gift to participants. Participants are required to read the book (over the course of the 6 month program) and complete review assignments. Active participation in book review discussion is expected. This course is required for all Track participants.
