The Foster College of Business’ Executive Development Center (EDC) held another successful program seminar of Maximizing Your Leadership Potential in December, 2013 in Chicago, IL.  Maximizing Your Leadership Potential is a leadership program developed by the Center for Creative Leadership©.  The EDC is a network associate for the Center for Creative Leadership©.

Many who attended the seminar took away a wide array of valuable information, new skills and assessment data.

“My experience with Maximizing Your Leadership Potential has been one of support, information, context and one-on-one coaching,” Gina Sheehy, Director of Key Relationship Management at Kao USA Inc. in the Greater Chicago area said.  “It not only showed me the things that I maybe couldn’t see myself, but gave me a supportive environment to figure out ways to better my leadership experience.” 

Kao Corporation is a leading manufacturer of premium beauty care brands that are recognized around the world for their innovation and quality.

Sheehy went on to say, “I received more training, information and development skills to further my leadership in two and a half days with Maximizing Your Leadership Potential than I have in the last 23 years of executive training that I've taken in my career.” 

Chris Cangilla, Production Manager at Weigel Broadcasting in Chicago, IL, also attended Maximizing Your Leadership Potential and rated the program high.                                                                                            

“I was able to really discover a lot about myself and focus my energy on making positive changes on what I learned when I return back to the workplace,” Cangilla said.  “I would definitely recommend this program to everyone.  It was challenging, and we all learned a lot.” 

Weigel Broadcasting is an American television broadcasting company. The company is based in Chicago, Illinois. 

Recently, the EDC secured an extended contract with the Center for Creative Leadership© through March 2015, which will put forth two more Chicago Maximizing Your Leadership Potential programs for 2014. 

For more than four decades, the Center for Creative Leadership© has leveraged the power of leadership to transform individuals, teams, entire organizations and societies to achieve what matters most to them – with results that are powerful, measurable and enduring.  It has also been ranked among the world's Top 10 providers of executive education by Bloomberg BusinessWeek and the Financial Times.
