News & Opinion: Srikumar Rao's Advanced Leadership Clinic

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:48 PM – Filed under: Leadership & Strategy

We are talking with interesting people all of the time. It is probably my favorite part of the job. On Friday, I had a great conversation with Srikumar Rao. He has written a book called Are You Ready To Succeed? You'll be seeing more about this book in the coming weeks.

What I wanted to give you a heads-up on a program Professor Rao runs. It is called the Advanced Leadership Clinic and is run in conjunction with The Leader to Leader Institute. It is definitely targeting C-level executives with a $20,000 price tag. There are a number of things that make it different than the typical leadership workshop.
  1. You apply to get in and application process is extensive.
  2. It runs over eight Fridays in NYC and there is a weekend retreat.
  3. There are six books and three assignments to do before you even start.
  4. You need to be ready to look deeply at yourself and how you look at the world.

The enrollment deadline is May 15th. The first class takes place on June 2nd in New York City.
