The Graduate School of Public Policy invites to an Executive Education program on Principle-Centered Leadership on 18-19 April 2018. 

Participants will acquire necessary skills for effective management.

Research has shown that the principles woven into this workshop represent life objectives. Since the skills can be universally applied and extend beyond culturally-bound values, a program of personal development which centers around honing the core traits introduced in this program will allow participants to become more effective in all their relationships.
