Middle Managers Receive Professional Growth and Success through Multicultural Leadership Program

Hodges University News

Sponsored by the Hodges University’s Hispanic Institute, the university’s Multicultural Leadership Program is scheduled for May 12 – June 30. The eight-week program will be held from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Thursdays at the Naples campus.

With a focus on results, the program is designed to provide middle managers from varying cultures with the necessary tools to reach their potential for greater leadership roles. “The program’s emphasis is on self-awareness, confidence building, cultural competency, communication and conflict resolution,” remarked Adriana Buitrago, director of the Hispanic Institute at Hodges.

The curriculum, Buitrago added, provides participants with “broad-based leadership perspectives.” Key benefits of the program include a better understanding of personality and work style; relationship building; effective leadership and communication in a multicultural environment; conflict resolution and change management; and collaboration with groups, multicultural peers and businesses.

Throughout the course of the program, participants will hear from guest speakers, collaborate on weekly assignments, as well as participate in a case study, which will require research and application. By applying what they know, participants will design solutions to a problem based on a topic they select, ultimately improving team building and skill development. 

The cost to participate in the program is $600, and interested candidates must submit an application by April 29, 2016. Applications may be submitted online or by mail.
