NEFI Announces New Advanced Education Programs
After a successful launch in 2019, NEFI Advanced Education announced that it will again offer the Management Development and Energy Leaders programs for 2019-2020. These sessions have been updated to reflect current market conditions and help industry leaders steer their companies to a successful “Net-Zero Carbon by 2050” future — a goal outlined in NEFI’s recent resolution, “Renewing Our Commitment to Renewable Liquid Heating Fuels."
The Management Development Program was created to take key management staff to the next level, with self-paced coursework on leadership, productivity, communication, culture and motivation. Led by Quinnipiac University’s Corporate Training Division, the Management Development Program launches in October 2019 and combines distance learning, self-paced assignments and in-person group sessions. These last sessions will be held at centralized locations in October, November, March and April, ensuring top managers are in-house during busy winter months. Quinnipiac interviewed business owners to discover the skills their managers needed, and developed the program to meet those needs. Companies have reported marked improvement in goal setting, conflict resolution and team building from last year’s participants. Pre-registration is available at nefi.com/education, and additional details will be revealed by NEFI at the HEAT Show in September (see “The HEAT Is On” cover story).
Also open for pre-registration, the Energy Leaders Program at Dartmouth is a five-day immersive workshop for company owners, presidents and senior executives. Developed and directed by the world-renowned Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and described by participants as “intense” and “transformative,” the MBA-caliber program aims to give participants the tools and framework they need to transform organizations, inspire teams, and drive results.
