Instructional Approach

Participants will be actively engaged in designing their own Sideline. Each of the live and taped 6 sessions per course will focus on 2-3 critical business leadership skills. Instructors will challenge students to actively apply the skills to their own Sideline design elements. The last half-hour of each 90-minute session will include live questions and answers to specific design questions that participants are experiencing. Open online Office hours are offered each day of the program.
