Ivey Leadership Series

A series two-day executive development sessions for supervisory officers, principals and vice-principals designed to extend the impact of leadership.

Each two‑day session will be delivered through a rich mix of case studies, exercises and group work by leading members of the Ivey Faculty.
Together participants will explore topics that will develop their leadership abilities to build coherence in their organizations and to strengthen their capacity to deliver on educational priorities.

Sessional fee: (Ontario) $299 (regular), $199 for each additional session(s) – spaces are limited
Sessional fee: (Outside of Ontario) $399 (regular), $199 for each additional session(s) – spaces are limited
Fee includes breakfast, lunch, breaks (and dinner on Day 1)

Sessions will commence at 8:30 am and run through to 8:00 pm on Day 1. Day 2 will commence at 8:30 am and conclude at 4:00 pm

Note: These courses are not for every leader. In keeping with Ivey expectations, these 2 days are rigorous. They demand that participants are able to fully engage and “be present”. Ivey’s expectations are that if you register, you are able to participate from beginning to end – no exceptions. You will need to disconnect yourself from your work environment and recognize that you will be able to check emails and make phone calls only during breaks and lunch.
