Brian has led dozens of multimillion dollar consulting engagements with Fortune 100 companies from all over the world and will be with you in each section to contextualize your course material with over 35 years of real-world experience. In short, the course is here to help you take another step in your career and be a more effective change agent in the future.

Engaging Video Lectures, Expert Interviews, and Interactive Exercises

Then, you'll learn how to be more productive and how to work successfully with the many claims on your time and energy.

In the final third of the course, you'll develop an ability to look at key management issues from a macroeconomic perspective. This will enable you to anticipate macroeconomic events and important changes in government policies. In the final section, you'll learn to develop your leadership style by developing leadership guideposts and then building tools that you can use to understand people and work better in teams.
