Professional and Leadership Development Workshops
Ashford University promotes learning and development beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Ashford partners with organizations with the same vision that are committed to providing greater educational opportunities to their employees.
One way Ashford helps these organizations accomplish their goals is by providing access to our Professional Development Team. Team members bring years of experience in executive coaching, presentation skills, public speaking, and corporate training. They share this knowledge through webinars and live presentations. Through these interactive sessions, our partners can empower their employees and teach the key business skills that they need to thrive in today's economy.
Ashford also understands the importance of building a community for our students and alumni based on support and growth. Networking and professional development events are hosted every month in cities where the majority of our student and alumni reside.
Ashford's Professional Development team currently offers the following workshops:
Coffeehouse Collaboration: Fostering Creativity and Innovation through Teams
For centuries, the coffeehouse environment has inspired a new level of creativity among individuals, teams, and groups. Team collaboration is at the heart of everything we do organizationally. In this session, leaders will learn to create an environment that promotes healthy and robust collaboration sessions while utilizing new techniques and systems that will unleash innovative ideas and action.
Standing Room Only: Transforming your Presentations with Story and Spontaneity!
