Fritzky Leadership Fellows kickoff school year with week-long training

Every fall the Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking hosts a week-long intensive workshop for the incoming Fritzky Leadership Fellows. This year, cameras were there to capture the handpicked team of second-year MBAs as they prepared to become coaches to their first-year peers. Activities for the week included an improvisation class and a day of rowing out on Seattle’s Lake Union.

Beyond developing their leadership and coaching skills, the training was also a bonding experience for the students. Reflecting on her time at the training, Fritzky Fellow Junny Kim Rzeplinski wrote, “The best part of the week was feeling like I had a solid, strong group of friends and fellows that were going to be along the ride with me in this adventure. That alone made me feel confident and prepared.”

The Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking at the University Of Washington Foster School Of Business focuses on integrating rigor and relevance in terms of how leadership and strategic thinking is developed. Learn more about the center on their website.
