The Leadership Experience

The Leadership Experience is UNC Charlotte's CUPA-HR award-winning development program designed to enhance leadership competencies of mid-to senior-level managers.  This semester-long course includes a variety of well-respected topics including Situational Leadership, a 360° Assessment from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL); CoreStrengthsevidence-based management, critical thinking and problem solving. Participants will gain an understanding of the differences between leadership and management, how to clarify expectations, influence people, make fact-based decisions, and build relationships based on trust and mutual respect. The program promotes on-the-job application in two ways - attendees commit to the full semester schedule and participate in a team capstone project to benefit the University; attendees also work with their manager and direct-reports throughout the program to apply enhanced leadership skills.
