RiceLeaders Curriculum

Under the direction of Brent Smith of the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business, we have developed a 12-day curriculum, offered in four modules over a year’s period. The focus is on the critically important capacities of leadership, teamwork, creativity and strategy implementation. Along with the curriculum, RiceLeaders participants are responsible for completing  action learning projects, which are designed both to advance some key V2C initiatives and give participants practical experience in trying out new leadership skills. Each participant’s examination of his or her own leadership strengths and weaknesses is aided by a series of assessments by colleagues, subordinates and supervisors, and by dedicated time with an executive coach. The modules include:
