This course has consistently received overwhelmingly positive feedback and has resulted in some great outcomes for past participants! The class was developed specifically for UCOP staff and is most beneficial to high-performing individuals who manage people or projects. It is a great way to help boost your professional development and career goals in the new year.

  • Successfully think and speak extemporaneously.
