Content for each training is tailored to meet the needs of high potential employees, frontline supervisors, middle managers or executive leadership.

Academy instructors include university faculty and real-world practitioners. In our workshops, the emphasis is on an interactive process. Instructors use case studies, individual and group exercises and discussions that allow participants to understand how the ideas and methods they learn apply to their own work. This unique, dynamic experience may be presented in full or half-day workshops.

The Voinovich Academy offers customizable trainings to meet organization-specific needs. Customized training typically involved a series of full or half-day workshops, conducted over a time span defined by the partner.
