Tell me a little bit about this program.
Who should participate in this program?
What’s included in this program?
- We developed a look and feel to the program, from the binder design featuring art based upon the science being conducted in some of the most prestigious labs in the country, to the user friendly layout of the content, making it easy to instantly access the most critical concepts in the program.
- The program includes updated content from the original program that remains relevant to the industry, while adding new modules that address the challenges faced by today’s leaders in the life sciences. See the program syllabus for an overview of the program content.
- Assessments, activities, videos and websites have been integrated to enhance the learning experience and outcomes.
- Current reading lists, web-based resources, articles and videos are available to participants through the Graduate Resources on our website.
- Through the use of multiple learning techniques, we address a variety of learning styles and generational preferences. Participants never feel like they are in school or being lectured to. The sessions are comfortable for participants, yet highly dynamic. Led by highly experienced facilitators with tremendous industry knowledge, participants discuss and explore the content through group discussions, individual reflection, learning pods, team-learning, and using their companies as laboratories. They will share and implement best practices that are learned in their sessions, as well as from their company. There are even opportunities for the participants to serve as facilitators in the program, sharing the results of their learning pod activities.
- Content and activities have been designed to achieve great levels of implementation and impact. Using the “company as a laboratory” concept, participants will gain a greater understanding of the business, in addition to the science that their companies are founded upon. As they interview individuals in their companies and/or make observations, they also build strong relationships across the organization and increase their organization visibility. This allows them to make better decisions every day, drives greater levels of performance and strongly supports their professional growth and advancement.
What is the format and duration of the program?
How much does the program cost?
* We partner with life science associations to offer discounted pricing. Our partners include: Biocom, Life Science Washington, CA Life Science Association, Colorado BioScience Association and MassBio.
When is payment due? Do you accept credit cards?
Who do I make the payment to?
What happens if I miss a class?
Is it better to bring our program in-house or have my participants take part in a public class?
In house programs are comprised of only your employees and offer tremendous advantages as well. One of the greatest benefits of an in-house program is that all of the content is customized to reflect the culture, philosophies, systems and goals of your company. In addition, the program provides not only an opportunity to develop as managers, but also supports your employees discussing and working together to resolve issues and pursue opportunities presented to your company. Teamwork and camaraderie are developed as participants engage with managers from their teams and managers/leaders from other teams, departments or functional areas. The composition may be designed by the level in your organization, functional area, or to integrate various levels of leadership depending upon your goals.

ARE YOU HOSTING AN IN-HOUSE PROGRAM?
Preferred Room Layout:
U-shaped. If this is not available, please let us know so we can discuss other options. The facilitator will need a table in front of the room for materials.
Preferred Room Size:
Large enough to accommodate the number of people in a U-shaped environment and large enough to provide enough room to gather into small groups within the room. Ideally they have a place to put their binders, name tent cards and to be able to write comfortably.
Refreshments are provided by the host. In a morning session, coffee and juice are recommended. If you would like, bagels and muffins can also be a good “draw” for getting people there on time, but they are not a necessity. Other refreshments like coffee, water and tea are preferred for all session times and throughout the day for full day programs.
The Leadership Edge does not provide lunch or meals. Please advise us of lunchtime options for participants; if there is a cafeteria on-site, food options nearby, or kitchen with refrigeration for participants to bring their lunches.
Ensure that the room temperature is at a comfortable level that is conducive to learning and can be easily monitored and/or adjusted as needed. Usually 70° to 74° is comfortable.
The facilitator will need a contact person at the facility with whom to communicate. We will need their direct dial number and/or cell number for early arrivals, as well as to confirm the receipt of shipping materials prior to the program.
If the program is starting before regular business hours, please ensure there is someone to meet the facilitator. The facilitator will arrive about 45 minutes prior to the class. Please coordinate with the facilitator so they may be let in.
The general needs of the program are as follows:
• LCD projector with laptop and screen
• Audio capabilities for video displays
• Wi-fi access
• Two Post-It style flip charts with stands and markers
Please make sure there is ample parking available and that an appropriate guest list is provided so that all participants can be admitted to parking/building.
Please locate a facility at least two or three weeks prior to the start of a program so that all participants may be advised. A map and/or directions to the facility should be provided to The Leadership Edge at this time.
Day of Event:
The facilitator will arrive at your meeting site at least 45 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the program to personally review the physical arrangements and coordinate any final details.
