Blended Learning Solution

The University of Dayton Center for Leadership in partnership with Wiley and The Table Group is offering a pilot blended learning solution starting August 2015.  This program gives a comprehensive, practical approach to achieving organizational health, based on the best-selling book, the Advantage, by leading author and expert business consultant, Patrick Lencioni.  Lencioni's organization health model is designed to help give company's a sustainable competitive advantage.

The program is delivered in a blended format over 8 weeks with participants; spending 3 hours each week learning the fundamentals in a dynamic and engaging online environment; synchronous checkpoints to reinforce key concepts; and then coming together for an 8 hour onsite class workshop to apply what they have learned. Upon completion, 3 continuing education units (CEUs) will be awarded from the University of Dayton.

This program will help leaders:

• Understand the foundations of Organizational Health and how it drives a sustainable competitive advantage.

• Apply six critical questions to create clarity around organizational values, strategies, and goals

• Create a healthy organization by teaching leaders to communicate with clarity, to develop accountability and trust, engage employees and build teamwork.
