Leadership - Italy

"Helping Leaders Change the World from the Inside."

For decades, the concept of “leadership” meant making structural changes to an organization. The focus was outward – and the results were fleeting. As one of the nation’s premier Jesuit universities, Gonzaga takes a transformational approach to help leaders change the world from the inside. This introspective focus gives you tools to effect true change in organizations, offer creative approaches to problems, emphasize collaborations, respect diversity, and demonstrate clear vision.  By traveling to Italy, and being immersed in a different culture, you are provided an opportunity to use and enhance your communication and leadership skills on a moment by moment basis.
