Understand yourself as a leader

Alex Kinsella, Digital Marketing Manager at Communitech, and Cole Mason, VP of Product at Arcane

Alex Kinsella, Digital Marketing Manager at Communitech, and Cole Mason, VP of Product at Arcane, both attended the Ivey Leadership Program in 2017. They recently reconvened on Alex’s podcast to reflect on their experience at the Ivey Leadership Program and how they implemented what they learned in the program over the past six months. Listen below: 

Highlights include:

  • A discussion on purpose from both an individual contributor’s perspective and an organizational perspective;
  • An experiential exercise that allowed them to practice working through difficult conversations;
  • The assessment tools that helped them to deeply understand themselves, and how that enhanced understanding changed the way they behave as leaders; and,
  • How the program experience was a catalyst for changes in leadership at Arcane.

The Ivey Academy is ranked as one of the top Executive Education providers globally by Financial Times. The Open-Enrolment portfolio comprises 19 programs focused on core leadership, business acumen, and industry-specific skills. Open programs are typically three days to three weeks in length, and are held at both our Toronto and London campuses. Our Custom Academy business unit works with corporations, governments, and other NGOs and non-profits to design and execute development and training programs tailored to the client’s specific needs. Custom Academy programs are typically multi-cohort, multi-year endeavours, supporting executive, HR and L&D objectives, and run either at our Toronto and London campuses or globally based on client preference. All Ivey Academy programs are deeply experiential in nature, concentrating as much on behaviour change as knowledge transfer.
