The most innovative leaders have a distinct edge. They are not afraid to try new things and move ideas from pipe dream to trial phase. They are not satisfied with the status quo and are willing to take risks. Leading innovation is not easy. At Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM), we cultivate leaders who develop and inspire innovative ideas by threading the skills and tools necessary throughout graduate degree programs and Corporate Learning Solutions.
Lake Forest Graduate School of Management has a record of success that’s 70 years in the making. We did not make it to this level by going with the status quo – we make sure that our degree and Corporate Learning Solutions alumni are above the crowd, armed with the tools prepared to become leaders in the ever-evolving business community.
We put all those decades of experience into the Translating Strategy into Action program, part of our Corporate Learning Solutions (CLS) curriculum. The program provides participants with a framework to develop and execute a strategic vision that has widespread benefits for their organization.
At Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, we consider self-awareness to be a foundation of successful leadership. Time and again we’ve seen a lack of self-awareness become a stumbling block for promising leaders. Conversely, leaders with a keen sense of self are better equipped to overcome obstacles and continue to develop other key leadership skills such as engaging others and demonstrating agility in the face of uncertainty.
