Many of you -- the best and brightest of your generation -- won’t go to business school. And you aren’t going to get long apprenticeships learning how to manage from a terrific boss. Many of you are being shoved into leadership and management roles because you are great at your jobs, because your company is growing rapidly, or both. But the talents that make you a great individual contributor are not the same ones that will make you a great manager.

This six-session immersion in management thinking takes place over three days. Using simulations, case studies, and group exercises from the classrooms of Stanford University and Harvard Business School we will tackle:

— Setting goals for you and your team

— Performance management

— Managing engineers and artists

— Organization design

— Executive communication

— Tricky situations managing humans

This immersion comes with a big workload. In addition to twelve hours in-session, plan on about twenty hours of prep work outside of class. General Management meets from 10AM to 2PM over three days. Each day is broken into two sessions with lunch served in between the sessions. Enrollment is limited so that we can all get to know each other.

If you join the class, tuition is $2,450. As an alum of General Management, you have free access to all Harrison Metal elective classes.
