The Right Climate for Learning
Eckerd College provides a world-class program in a world-class setting. The climate we’ve created for learning—one that is stimulating and challenging, yet relaxed and open-minded—is enhanced by our sunny, Florida location.
The retreat-style setting of our waterfront training facility allows participants to escape the everyday rigors of work and focus on their professional development in a safe and supportive learning environment.
High-Quality, Assessment-Based Program Content
Rich, research-based content is focused on what matters most for first-time and front-line managers.
Intense, personalized feedback gives participants an assessment of important competencies and a plan for learning.
The interactive, hands-on format prepares participants to take action back at work. Coaching and take-home tools support newly enhanced skills of influencing, conflict resolution and communication.
Low instructor/participant ratio: 1:12.
