09. Dining Before Learning
Dinner (or for a few Section Cohorts, Lunch) is served prior to each Learning Session. All meals are included in the Program Fee. At MDI.TOKYO we believe that dining before learning is a more is a more civilized way to learn.
10. Manageable Learning Pace
The “Work-Friendly” Program Design – 10 Learning Sessions spread out over one year – accommodates busy professionals while enabling significant learning opportunities to occur between each Learning Session. For example, some Participants may reflect and write in their Learning Journal after a Learning Session, others may deeply engage their supplemental readings, still others may apply and test what they have learned. Finally, some Learning Teams may choose to meet independently each bye week so they can discuss and learn together.
13. Newfound Confidence
As you acquire an improved self-awareness and a deeper understanding of the requirements for building a successful organization, you develop the confidence that is essential for gaining the consensus required to implement new business initiatives.
14. Communication Skills
In addition to writing a Case Analysis Memo before the Learning Sessions, at least once, you and your Learning Team will take 20 minutes to present your analysis to the entire Section Cohort during a Learning Session. Other times, your Learning Team and others will surface strengths and weaknesses in the presenting team’s analysis through a civil, but occasionally aggressive, Q&A session. (The instructor gently nudges and guides the Q&A to ensure that the learning goals for the session are achieved).
