Workshop - Steve Parker Grows Up: Management and Leadership Transitions Post-Hult.
Many Hult MBA's will remember the case of Steve Parker, the young American who found himself in deep water as the General Manager of a Sino-American auto parts JV. It was asserted in class that Parker faced a transition that many Hult MBA's would face early in their careers. This interactive session will examine the accuracy of that assertion. We will remind ourselves of the lessons from the Steve Parker case and evaluate their applicability to the real experiences of Hult graduates. We then will examine "what's next" against the background of new research and perspectives on transitions from managerial to leadership roles.
Workshop - What Exactly is a Crisis?
The Crisis Communication Workshop is fun, hard work and gets your team thinking on its feet. An insight to how the Hong Kong Stock Exchange handled their problems, how BP mishandled theirs in the US and the messages Tiger Woods gave during his press conference and all this will all help to give you an initial insight into the complexities of Crisis Communication. The characteristics of a crisis can be surprise, insufficient information and a loss of control resulting in intense scrutiny from the outside creating a siege mentality inside the corporation. Or maybe not… Your own crisis will have characteristics particular to your own situation. The team will be educated through a series of scenarios with updates that changes the situation so that the team needs to confer on the best strategy and write the latest statement/release, Q&A, or whatever medium they feel most appropriate.
Workshop - Your 8 Great Goods: Learning to be a Better Leader, Parent, and Friend.
In this seminar, find out what your "Greatest Good" is — and those of the people around you. How can you solve conflicts in your work teams? What could your loved ones possibly be thinking? Why is the world so messed up? During six years of research including surveys and interviews with thousands of people from 20 different cultures, John Beck found that there are 8 great "Goods" about which we make all of our decisions. And each one of us has a pretty much unique prioritization of these 8 as we make our way through life. (Of 2000 Americans surveyed, about 1750 had a unique ordering of these Goods; the rest shared theirs with only one other person.) While we all agree that all 8 are important and good, if two people's priorities are significantly different, each is likely to think of the other as evil—and the fireworks (literally in some cases) begin. By understanding yourself and others through this lens, you'll find more “Good” in everything around you.
