Boot Camp for Experienced Managers

UC Berkeley’s Boot Camp for Experienced Managers was created to help you take an unbiased view of yourself and the organization that you lead, and develop a personalized course of action for bringing your organization to its full potential.  Over four days, you will work with accomplished peers, top UC Berkeley-Haas faculty, and industry thought leaders to determine a path forward that works for you, and for the people you lead.

Our faculty have strong industry ties and deep research backgrounds, and can thoroughly address the questions that managers are repeatedly asking:  What are the most effective ways to keep my team motivated, striving for excellence, and seeking new opportunities to improve the business, every day?  How do I develop a successful plan to lead and manage change?  How do I create high productivity teams, with an orientation toward results, not just meetings?  How do I attract and develop the world-class talent I need—and what really keeps them coming to work every day fully engaged?

" The Berkeley Boot Camp for Experienced Managers exceeded my expectations; it synthesized the essential concepts necessary for being a successful senior manager. The course revitalized me and imbued me with a fresh sense of confidence and purpose. The program is made up of well-synthesized theory-based lectures and practical sessions, which prepared me to embrace change as an opportunity and to adapt dynamically. The group of participants was extremely diverse and we learned a lot from each other. The diagnostic surveys provided me with invaluable insights into my management style. The entire faculty, brilliantly anchored by Homa Bahrami, was superb - in style, content, delivery - and inspirational. I strongly recommend this program to all those who are looking to lead change, grow organizations and manage stakeholders. "
