Managers in Transition


The Managers in Transition program provides managers in senior development positions with short-term, customized, professional sabbaticals that emphasize reflection on the substantive managerial and strategic challenges they face. Through dialogue with the core training team and other faculty, the program aims to improve managers’ transitions to new positions, strengthening their future performance in staff management, client engagement, project preparation and implementation, and sustainable development.

The one-week residential program is run by DCID and the University of North Carolina Center for Global Initiatives on the campuses of Duke University and the University of North Carolina (UNC), giving participants access to a wide range of knowledge and scholarship available within Duke, UNC and organizations located in the dynamic Research Triangle Region of North Carolina.

The core Managers in Transition team includes faculty and practitioners with expertise in management and leadership, strategy and organizational change, communication and negotiation, economics, political science and other relevant academic disciplines.
