How It Works

The RLI Maximize Your Influence and Impact Course puts the knowledge in your hands through a comprehensive program of blended learning that provides foundational leadership knowledge and the skills to lead, nurture and negotiate like a pro.

Live 90 minute sessions are presented on alternate Tuesdays and include a faculty presentation with Q&A throughout the session. We will be using the Zoom platform and each session is recorded so that if you are unable to join, you can review the content at a later date.  

There are pre-read/resource materials provided as well as the ability to interact with the cohort and faculty via a closed Maximize community within the ACR Engage platform.
