Welcome to GCU
Whether you are just beginning your career as a legal leader or an experienced GC with a record of executive roles in leading organizations, GCU can help you to perform your role more effectively.
GCU is committed to providing GCs with a curriculum that’s strategically mapped to top Competencies that will enhance your contribution to the C-suite and advance the business. Each course will include learning objectives from at least two such Competencies. The Most Sought GC Program is based on Korn Ferry’s global competency framework, derived from qualitative, quantitative and market-based data, and relying on comprehensive and rigorous analysis, external research literature etc. WGCC commissioned Korn Ferry to identify key competencies, traits, drivers of GCs that are requisite to be the “Most Sought” GC and we have used that research to frame this Program.
GCU is designed with the Korn Ferry leadership competencies creating an opportunity for personal reflection as part of each participant’s personal leadership journey. The page at the end of the individual Korn Ferry assessment reports, provided to each participant at the commencement of GCU, sets out Development Priorities and is an important guide to develop a plan.
In order to successfully finish GCU, each participant must provide 1,000 word personal essay about the development opportunity identified in their Korn Ferry personal assessment, how they set about to tackle it, and what they have learned and achieved (or failed!). The essays will be read in confidence by the Dean. They are not marked; this is really a way for GCU participants to hold themselves accountable.
Deadlines to complete Capstone Project:
Cohort 2: the Capstone essay is due on Friday, January 6, 2023.
