Q: Why should I attend EIL?

Past participants confirm that Notre Dame’s cutting-edge Executive Integral Leadership (EIL) experience has brought substantial change to their lives and careers. Your experience is an opportunity to explore what defines meaningful success for you. Here you will gain tools and skills to accelerate your proven aptitude for leadership and allow you to live and work in alignment with your values.

Q: How would you describe EIL?

Inspirational. Thought-provoking. Character-defining.

Inspirational: EIL presents an integrated learning model that emphasizes self-awareness and balance in all dimensions of development. Experts believe that such a focus is the key to optimizing effectiveness and sustaining exceptional performance, both individually and organizationally. During EIL, many participants realize they have opportunity to rebalance the cognitive, emotional, physical, interpersonal, ethical, moral and spiritual sides of themselves. Leaders are inspired to be better leaders and better people.

Thought-provoking: Extending far beyond the classroom, each participant’s experience is unique, but most find the powerful take-home tools instantly apply to both their personal and professional lives.

Character-defining: This weeklong program encourages participants to take the time to reflect on their personal values and rediscover the ability to live and work in harmony with those values.

Q: Will I experience the Notre Dame campus?

While attending Executive Integral Leadership, you will spend one week on Notre Dame’s historic campus. During the day, your home base will be the Giovanini Commons, an innovative learning environment within the Mendoza College of Business. Throughout the week you will visit the renowned Snite Museum of Art, enjoy a laugh while at Washington Hall and dine in a variety of campus locations. You might also satisfy your athletic and interests at the state-of-the-art Rolfs Sports and Recreation Center or Rockne Memorial.

Q: What is the schedule?

The program begins on Sunday afternoon at 4 pm with an overview and introduction to the week and continues through 2 pm on Friday afternoon. The final session, an important component of the program, cannot be missed; please schedule your travel plans accordingly. During your time at Notre Dame, the days are intense, rigorous, reflective and full. To the extent that you can delegate your personal and professional responsibilities for the week, you will have a richer EIL experience.

EIL’s unique format includes faculty experts with interactive exercises, two individual coaching sessions and evening activities. Each evening session is designed to complement and further enrich your experience.

Q: Why does Notre Dame have an application deadline of one month prior to the start of EIL?

To prepare for and facilitate your week on campus, the faculty recommends several short assignments for you to complete in the month prior to your arrival. The primary pre-program work is The Leadership Circle Profile, or 360° feedback instrument that requires you and 10 to 12 of your colleagues to complete a survey on your behalf. The Leadership Circle Profile experience at Notre Dame is unique because the results show how your values are connected to your behaviors. You will receive the results of this feedback instrument while at Notre Dame and it is the basis for your individual 90-minute coaching session later in the week.

To support your holistic approach to leadership development, you may complete a "V-Eight" health profile that will provide the starting point for your individual 60-minute health and wellness coaching session.

Additional pre-work includes identification of a strategic business challenge you are currently facing, various readings, exercises and information requests.

Q: Where do I stay during the program?

We will make reservations for you and all participants at a nearby hotel, either on campus or a short drive away. Lodging and all transportation from the hotel to the daily class sessions are facilitated by the University and are included in the tuition.

Q: What is the investment for the program?

The investment for an individual participant is $7,950 ($6,950 for an attendee representing a non-profit organization) and is due prior to the start of the program.

Tuition for additional participants from the same company or organization attending the same session is reduced to $6,950 per person.

A $1,500 non-refundable deposit is due immediately upon acceptance. Tuition covers all instruction, materials, assessments, lodging and meals.

Q: What is the Nonprofit Scholarship for Spring 2010?
