Programs for Organizations

Haskayne Executive Education

Here’s what you can expect from Haskayne’s programs for organizations:

Contextualization: Haskayne will work in partnership with your organization to tailor our programs to integrate into your strategic goals, directly addresses current and long term challenges and supports learning longevity (stickiness) and continuous improvement. Haskayne will work closely with your team to ensure that the content delivered is relevant to your organizational context.

Application and Integration: Action Learning Projects ("ALPs") incorporated within our leadership programs serve three main purposes:

  1. Application of knowledge – ALPs provide an opportunity for participants to apply the concepts, skills and tools gained during the program to a project that is relevant and meaningful. The result is increased "stickiness" of program learning.
  2. Enhanced Program Value - Working on projects deemed "important" by your organization allows both the organization and program participants to realize greater value from the learning experience. Emergent leaders grow most when tasked to work on ALPs that are real, challenging and that are endorsed by senior management.
  3. Tangible Program Outcome – ALPs provide a tangible outcome of participant learning that is typically missing from executive development programs. ALP presentations allow senior management to see and hear just how much participants have grown as a result of the leadership program. ALPs can also have significant influence on your organizational culture, processes and bottom line.

Practical and Relevant Faculty: Haskayne faculty are chosen based on their broad range of real-world experience and facilitation with executive learners. Haskayne faculty facilitate learning by leveraging relevant knowledge and practical application. Faculty will link class ideas through experiential activities and problem-based learning approaches that apply to your organization's context. As participants start to work on their Action Learning Projects, the Academic Director will provide support through mentorship and seek out subject matter experts within Haskayne to assist each participant with completing their comprehensive and critically mapped projects - thereby challenging each participant to reach and stretch his or her capabilities.

Customer Service: In addition to the Haskayne program development team, the Executive Education Client Experience Manager and a designated program coordinator also support the program. Our dedicated team oversees all organizational programs from beginning to end to ensure the best learning experience and highest level of service is achieved. Following the program, participants will still have access to the expertise base at Executive Education, as Haskayne encourages all participants to realize and implement the results of their leadership education.
