The Berkeley Executive Leadership Program

You have achieved enormous responsibility in your organization through your relentless hard work, proven decision-making ability, and natural talent.

UC Berkeley's Executive Leadership Program is about taking a brief professional pause to reflect—alongside others equally accomplished, facilitated by the foremost luminaries in their fields—on what kind of leader you are today, where you want to go from here, and what you will do to get there.

We specialize in cultivating your capabilities as a leader. Leadership is about finding meaning in your work. It is about navigating at many different altitudes with finesse, energizing and inspiring those around you to achieve. It is about proactively sensing and framing the opportunities for your organization, and marshaling resources toward adaptation and innovation. It is about the relaxed self-confidence that the best leaders learn and master through a knowledge of themselves and others.

Ultimately, the best leaders define what happens next—in their companies, their communities, and their families.

"Professor Jenny Chatman is remarkable – her passion for the subject matter makes the class. All the speakers have deep knowledge, experience and passion and are therefore able to give me the tools to diagnose and find solutions to issues. The peer coach program is a great way to learn while thinking through others’ problems. This program is definitely a worthwhile investment."

Cassio Conceicao, Vice President and General Manager, Service Products, Applied Materials
