Ross ranks No. 1 in the world at developing leaders like you. The Ross Leadership Initiative (RLI) is the school's leadership development center of excellence.
Our world is filled with challenges. More than ever before, we need leaders across society and throughout organizations whose core purpose is to make a positive difference. They must have the empathy, drive, courage, and the integrity to do the right thing even when it is not popular. We need leaders who can balance the competing tensions inherent in organizational life; leaders with a bias toward action, who can mobilize the highest potential in others.
Know yourself; lead yourself; influence others; lead others
Having vast arrays of knowledge is important but ultimately irrelevant unless you can put it into action. Developing the skills that will allow you to harness your knowledge to influence and lead people is imperative for a successful career in business. To help you gain this ability, the Master of Management program in conjunction with RLI has designed a leadership development plan specific for MM students. The plan works on a simple but powerful set of goals: Know yourself; lead yourself; influence others; leader others. Through action-based activities led by experts in the field you will learn about yourself, your personal strengths and opportunities for improvement when it comes to leading both yourself and others. You will participate in RLI-led workshops and events that immerse you in high-impact activities that provide you with the capabilities needed to lead in today's complex and dynamic world.
By the end of the program, you will have laid the groundwork for leadership roles in your career --- for both the near-term and long-term.
