"It has been my privilege to serve on Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business faculty for more than 15 years, researching, teaching, and advising students, executives, and organizations. My work and experience continues to reinforce a humble lesson — the most effective, time-tested theories, principles, and approaches will work only when they respond to each organization’s unique challenges and opportunities. That’s why we design our Executive Education programs with you — and your goals — in mind."
