Executive Development

Executive Development at CCU

Executive development includes an advanced management training program for leaders who are responsible for managing organizational goals at the operational, group, departmental, or individual level. This training is designed to promote personal and professional development as well as empower participants with management strategies that aid in the successful attainment of organizational goals. Coastal Carolina University provides this training based on sound management practices to enhance leadership development.

Our training programs consist of face-to-face, online or hybrid sessions with participants, possibly from different functional areas and levels of employment, to reinforce learning materials that can be transferred to on-the-job practices. Each training session consists of "pre-work" materials to prepare participants for the face-to-face classroom experience. Participants complete a series of readings on the content and engage in reflection exercises, self-assessment, and often develop personal action plans to enhance managerial effectiveness. Participants are encouraged to work with their managers to develop action plans that reflect their engagement in the organizational strategy of your organization.
