Technology has brought sweeping changes to the way we work. But how has it changed the way we lead?

The qualities that make a leader haven't changed, but as organizations become increasingly technical, good leaders need to reconsider how they make decisions and motivate teams, while reflecting on their own ideas about success amid digital transformation.

Questions like these are a specialty at the School of Business at Stevens Institute of Technology. We combine our heritage as an engineering university with research and teaching that's rooted in real-world applications and informed by our close ties to industry. That lets us offer leadership development programs that have helped professionals in aerospace, energy, defense, healthcare and other industries understand their unique leadership styles — giving organizations the tools to build effective leadership from within.

The key benefits of Stevens' leadership development programs include:

  • Practical orientation. Our approach focuses on developing leadership capabilities in each participant through the practice and assessment of leadership concepts in a real-world context.
  • Minimal disruption. Programs take between one and three days to complete. This short time commitment is more than made up through the development of valuable skills and perspective that will help guide organizational growth and efficiency.
  • Expert guidance. Our modules are developed by Stevens faculty, who are responsible for important research insights in leadership, especially in technical organizations.
