Program Goals and Guiding Principles

In addition to being devoted exclusively to smaller-scale developers, the Executive Program series is designed to be unique in its content, delivery, and outcomes.

The Goal of Each Program is:

  • Collegial: Participants will share problems, ideas, and solutions with people who are their professional peers and facing the same issues, joining an exclusive alliance of business peers. The program begins with registration as participants join an online community where they can begin to exchange questions and ideas.
  • Instructive: Experienced, senior-level ULI members and other professionals will present practical, experience-based operational best practices, as well as personal lessons learned in an intimate, interactive setting. Through both direct instruction and panel discussions, participants will learn strategies to take their company to the next level and enhance their own personal career fulfillment.
  • Collaborative: Participants will work together with their peers. They will draw on each other’s experience and build new relationships that will provide ideas for finding solutions to the business problems they face right now and will face long after the program ends.
