Leadership Assessment

A core part of leadership development is the ability to be aware of your own behaviors and needs—as well as those of others—and how these behaviors and needs can influence a particular situation, the dynamics of your team, and/or the success of your entire organization.

All students in Walden’s Executive M.B.A. program complete the Birkman leadership assessment in their first course. The Birkman Method® is an in-depth, 298-question personality assessment and related report that is widely used in businesses both large and small to help facilitate leadership development, career counseling, team building, and interpersonal conflict resolution.
It can be used to help you:

  • Understand your current leadership style.
  • Assess your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Hone your abilities for team building, negotiating, and decision making.

This in-depth self-assessment process provides you with objective and actionable feedback on your strengths and can help you identify opportunities for developing skills for more effectively performing in your present and future roles. What you learn will also provide you with a deeper level of personal insight that can be critical in developing a meaningful personal and professional development plan.

Leadership Residency

The leadership residency takes place in a U.S. city during the first course of the program. Thought provoking and immersive, this four-day residency offers new perspectives on the leadership and management challenges you face every day and provides an opportunity to interact face-to-face with your fellow classmates and faculty members.

The leadership residency is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the semester’s courses and bond with the people you will work with throughout the program. A rich series of multifaceted workshops, assessments, discussions, and networking events provides the opportunity to:

  • Evaluate your leadership style through an in-depth self-assessment.
  • Create your professional development plan.
  • Develop competency as an executive-level decision-maker and social change agent.
  • Collaborate and network with your peers.
  • Engage with faculty members in face-to-face learning experiences.
