RiceLeaders is designed to carefully and systematically support the development of a university-wide team with the tools and skills necessary to achieve our vision as a great research institution.
Our Target is to improve the collective capacity of the university to achieve our goals by expanding individual performance and leveraging individual performance through more effective team performance. As a result of completing the program, each cohort member will collaborate more effectively and support fellow and future groups of staff and faculty in this program as well as other development efforts. Seven cohorts of faculty and staff have participated in the program since its inception in 2007.

Researchers over the past thirty years have found that the moments that make the biggest difference in our effectiveness are situations where we have to communicate with one or more people. Specifically, the way we behave in the following two crucial moments has a profound effect on our success:
- Crucial Conversations: Communicating when the stakes are high, opinions differ, and emotions run strong.
- Crucial Accountability: Communicating with others who let us down, violate expectations, break promises, or behave poorly.
With both skill sets, people know how to surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and handle tough or persistent gaps in performance and expectations. You can find details on upcoming dates, how to register, etc. by visiting the Training and Professional Development section on our site. We hope you will join us!
Through hands-on exercises and video case studies of modern-day change agents, you’ll learn how to use six sources of influence to overcome your most persistent challenges. Influencer training will teach you how to:
- Diagnose the web of causes behind any problem behaviors and create powerful strategies for driving change.
- Identify a handful of high-leverage behaviors that, if changed, will lead to desired results.
- Rely less on formal authority and more on ways to motivate and enable others to alter their behavior.
- Use the powerful Influencer model to develop and apply a robust influence strategy to anything from small- to large-scale cultural transformations.
