At Sanger, our philosophy towards leader development is based on a few core assumptions:
- Leadership is like reading or math – it comprises skills and behaviors that anyone can learn
- Developing as a leader is a lifelong growth journey, where you make the most progress with a growth orientation, clear goals, intentional experiments (and acceptance of failures!), and lots of feedback
- Leader development is its most effective when its data-driven, based on experiential and action-based learning, and integrated into each individual’s unique leadership learning journey
As such, we take pride in our programs offering a combination of experiential learning opportunities, action-based learning, and data-driven approaches to skill development that draw on both historical research strengths at Ross as well as the most cutting edge recent data and science on leadership.
Furthermore, we as a center are also on our own leadership journey, and are always eager for feedback from our stakeholders to help us continue to improve ourselves and our opportunities for future generations of leaders at Michigan.
