UC Berkeley's: New Manager Boot Camp
For Newly Promoted Engineers and Scientists
"The faculty, presenters, and staff at the UC Berkeley New Manager Boot Camp course are excellent. The "Next Corporation/Steve Jobs" case study was fascinating. The analysis of leadership styles, the associated discussions and take-away points were especially useful for me as someone new in a leadership role."
