Organizational & Human Development is pleased to announce that applications open today for our two immersive Leadership Development programs: Leadership Essentials and Leadership Foundations.  Whether you are a new or seasoned manager, these two development opportunities can help you maximize your full potential.  Both programs are aligned to support Waterloo’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan Connecting Imagination with Impact. The mission, vision, and values of the university are embedded within our programs, and OHD is proud to help advance and support the lifelong learning and professional growth of employees. 

Please review the program descriptions and program questions to learn more about the program requirements, the application procedure, and to assess which program may be best suited to your needs. Applications will be accepted until February 28, 2020.
