The Art and Science of Leadership

Organizations committed to donation and transplantation are facing complex challenges that require the rapid development of leaders. Now, more than ever, leaders must: learn and deploy core management skills; develop a broad strategic perspective; take their leadership skills to the next level; and expand their professional and personal networks.

Introduced by the Gift of Life Institute in 2017, The Art and Science of Leadership: Driving Results for Donation and Transplantation Professionals, is a multi-faceted certificate program specifically designed to address the needs of donation and transplantation professionals. The unique design of this course combines deep industry knowledge from leaders in the organ and tissue donation field with academic expertise from two of the world’s leading universities, the Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and Fox School of Business at Temple University.

Combining face-to-face learning, virtual classroom training, and one-on-one project plan mentoring from industry leaders, The Art and Science of Leadership is designed to help both emerging and experienced leaders master core business concepts and build key skills in:

  • Transformational Leadership
  • Change Management
  • Talent Acquisition
  • Performance Management
  • Team Building
  • Design Thinking
