OneRED: High-Impact Leadership Program

OneRED: High-Impact Leadership Program is a new strategic growth opportunity for high-potential, non-aligned Rutgers staff leaders. Sponsored by the Rutgers Senior Leadership Team, it's designed to create a network of leaders with a university-wide, “One Rutgers” perspective, who will play critical roles in shaping the future of the university.

The OneRED: High-Impact Leadership Program combines classroom-based networking and instruction with focused online activities and multiple opportunities to assess and apply leadership styles and strengths. It is designed to build the leadership and professional competencies introduced this year as a foundation of the Rutgers Performance Management program.

Through the program, leaders will have the opportunity to build an active university-wide network at Rutgers and to exercise their leadership strengths to help build a more diverse, talented and resilient university.
