Stanford Manager Academy

Stanford Manager Academy

This development program is designed to enhance the effectiveness of staff managers at all levels of experience and create a community of managers across the university.

Participants

Each quarter 90 participants are nominated to participate in one of three 30-person cohorts. These individuals are interested in developing their foundational managerial skills for optimal impact in their leadership role.

Selection & Eligibility

To ensure that all departments are represented in each cohort, employees are nominated to participate by their Human Resources manager or director of Finance & Administration (School of Medicine).

Participants must be staff members who manage at least one full-time employee and have been in their current managerial role for at least six months.

Format

Stanford Manager Academy gives managers opportunities to learn new ways to address their most critical managerial challenges, share ideas with other managers across the university, and drive their own ongoing development.

Over a three-week span, participants attend two, two-day workshops. They also attend two presentations led by faculty from the Graduate School of Business. Participants receive 360-degree feedback, 1:1 leadership coaching, and on-the-job application of workshop models and concepts.

After completing the program, participants join a network of over 1,300 alumni and have the opportunity to attend alumni sessions, brown-bag activities and additional workshops.
