New leadership program for co-op executives.

The University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives, in partnership with the Center for Advanced Studies in Business at the Wisconsin School of Business, is launching a new program for cooperative executives and senior management. The Cooperative Executive Leadership Program will be a 4 1/2-day, intensive program focused on successful cooperative business leadership. It will be offered June 13-18 at the Fluno Center for Executive Education on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

The sessions, led by University of Wisconsin faculty and industry experts, will be thought provoking and pragmatic, sponsors say, and will involve group discussion, cooperative case studies and action-learning components. The program is designed to challenge participants to examine and develop successful cooperative business strategies.

Topic areas include: Cooperative Governance and Finance; Strategy Formulation and Execution; Strategic Leadership; Building a Change Management Discipline; and Creating Value Propositions for Member Owners. Program participants will include board executives, CEOs and their leadership teams from all cooperative sectors across the country. The Cooperative Executive Leadership Program will be limited to 30 participants in order to ensure an intensive high-quality learning experience.

The program is intended to help participants increase their ability to develop and execute complex strategic plans; discover new ways to lead and manage change; find ways to engage all stakeholders in value creation; acquire insights on using cooperative finance to achieve results; network with executive leadership from other cooperatives.

Wisconsin Executive Education is a global leader in executive education, making the Financial Times' list of top executive education programs for the fourth consecutive year.
