The Leadership NOW Seminar Series is designed for leaders and business professionals at all levels and from any type of organization. Our goal is to foster business growth and success as participants increase knowledge, build skills, and improve individual and team performance. Facilitated by expert instructors from the School of Extended Education, Leadership NOW offers applied training on topics of current interest in an informal and experiential learning environment. Participants acquire relevant tools, tips and techniques based on applicable "best practices” and engage in peer learning through interaction with other business professionals.
Beginning January 2014, Leadership NOW seminars will be offered at Brandman University's Irvine Campus on a bimonthly basis. The seminars have been expanded from two to 2.5 hours, scheduled in the evening for convenience, and include a dinner.
Seminars and workshops can be customized and delivered onsite for groups of employees. See Corporate Training & Custom Solutions for a list of over 60 topics currently in our library.

Building effective teams take time, knowledge, and reinforcement. With proper development, a team can be one of the most powerful contributors to organizational productivity. In this seminar, participants learn the definition of “team,” identify the characteristics of the best teams, explore different type of teams, and consider the stages of team development. Learning is strengthened by participation in an experiential team building exercise. Participants also develop an action plan for applying the team concepts back at work.

Resilience is a critical leadership competency. In this module, participants learn how to effectively transform disappointments, failures and mistakes into “stepping stones for success” by developing the skills and attitudes that will enable them to bounce back from set-backs. The step-by-step program includes learning how to 1) utilize the “Personal Responsibility Model,” 2) distinguish facts from stories, and 3) apply practical tools and techniques for building resiliency.
Seminars are offered bimonthly on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:30pm, with a dinner available from 5:00-6:00pm.
