With a small group from CIS bankers, we joined executives from around the world for a Leadership program at the prestigious University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Their business school, Michigan Ross, is the world’s leading home for research on building positive organizations defined by engaged employees, empowered people, and a culture of collaboration and commitment. After more than ten years of research by Ross’ Center for Positive Organizations, they have learned how leaders motivate, inspire, and transform their organizations.
In this program, we discovered our leadership strengths and learned new strategies and techniques for energizing and engaging employees, driving change and innovation, and delivering value to customers. We emerged prepared, confident, and motivated to transform our organization’s culture, drive innovation, and radically improve our bottom line.
