The Looking Glass Experience


8 locations available

Program Description

Take a look at yourself.

You will benefit from it, no matter who you are - or where you are in your career.

You may be a new manager - and you may want to get a jump-start to help you be a better leader right from the beginning.

You may be in mid-career, or even later. And right about now, you may want a reality check, to make absolutely certain that you are living up to your potential, which was, after all, the reason you were hired.

You could even be a senior executive looking for some straight, unbiased feedback about how you lead.

The Looking Glass Experience can help.

This program shows you how you lead and influence others in an organization. You will learn how to make difficult, complex decisions - and you will learn how your particular leadership style affects your workplace, those you work with and ultimately, your own success as a leader.

The Looking Glass, Inc.® organizational simulation is successful because it is real. It so closely parallels real life that you will find that your performance mirrors the behaviors you exhibit at work. It can lead to a dramatic improvement in your strategic thinking process, along with your ability to communicate, successfully navigate the complexities of your organization and foster productive relationships.

The Looking Glass Experience is work. It includes leadership assessments, group discussion and intensive feedback from your peers in the program and your colleagues back at home.

At the end of it, you can expect to see the real you. And that's good. The best way to improve what you see when you look at yourself in the future is to get an accurate picture of what you look like right now.

The Looking Glass Experience has helped thousands of leaders get there. Let us help you.
