Announcing a redesign of my U of C Booth program: High Performance Leadership

By: Susan Lucia Annunzio. Category: Newsletters

I am very excited to announce my new High Performance Leadership course at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, which will be offered May 9-13.

As many of you know I have taught executive education courses on six continents. Most recently I’ve led classes in Saudi Arabia, England and India, in addition to the U.S. It never ceases to amaze me that despite outward differences, leadership and human needs are similar around the world.

During the last two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought disruption and unprecedented challenges to senior leaders, who are confronting “The Great Resignation,” burnout, and work-life balance issues. Workloads are increasing as the workforce decreases, and remote work has made communication more difficult than ever.

Are you interested in learning how high-performing leaders handle challenging conversations with employees, peers and bosses? How to deliver bad news, manage change and deal with employees’ emotions? How to increase ROI by tapping into the brainpower of your team?

This five-day offering touches on these subjects and more in a safe, interactive and dynamic environment. Participants in Booth classes are senior leaders from all over the world who bring their personal experiences to the group.

The program will include daily peer coaching sessions and faculty feedback in diverse small groups as well as experiential exercises, including improvisation.

A highlight of the program will be a fireside chat with Dr. Pat Basu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Dr. Basu, a physician who served as a senior White House advisor to President Barack Obama, will discuss the challenges he has faced as a leader over the past two years, as well his leadership journey.
