Many professionals excel in their technical abilities but are often unsure of themselves in the area of interpersonal skills. CIMBA’s LIFE (Leadership Initiative for Excellence) Program will help you understand the effect of your behavior on other people, and teach you how to develop strategies to improve your people skills. It will deepen your understanding of yourself and show you how to make the best use of your unique personal traits in order to achieve your goals. A key benefit of the program is that it will also help you to identify personal characteristics that may inhibit your success, thus allowing you to make changes. After completing the LIFE program, you will receive a leadership certificate signifying your accomplishment.

LIFE is a three-day, full-immersion training. It is an intensive, highly stimulating course in which participants encounter and practice the skills needed for effective leadership. This program is performance-based, meaning you will experience and practice all leadership training through challenging hands-on exercises rather than passively listening to lectures. The results will lead to increased opportunities for sustainable, personal growth. During LIFE, you will have the opportunity to use biofeedback tools such as a heart-rate monitor to measure your stress levels while participating in activities, helping you reflect on the impact of your behaviors in professional and personal settings. Many students find it eye-opening to see real data describing their body’s physical reaction to stress. Both before and after LIFE, you will take personal growth assessments in order to help you identify strengths, areas for improvements and your style in working with others.
