Texaco Press Release - Texaco Holds Sixth Management Institute for Executives of Non-Profits
FOR RELEASE: TUESDAY, MAY 30, 2000.
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 30 -- Texaco announced that the sixth Texaco Management Institute (TMI), a management development workshop for key national and international executives of non-profit organizations was held May 23-26, in Houston. Including this class, a total of 136 heads of non-profit groups will have benefited from this highly effective training.
Designed to provide formalized management training through the use of learning modules and personal feedback sessions for executives of non-profit organizations, the Texaco Management Institute was administered by two of the nation's leading management consultants, Marshall Goldsmith, founding director of Keilty, Goldsmith and Company and member of the Drucker Foundation Board and Nadir Muwwakkil, President of Vision Group International.
"The Texaco Management Institute brings together heads of non-profit groups for an interactive learning experience designed to develop leadership skills," said Anne T. Dowling, Director, Corporate Contributions and Community Relations. "Just as Texaco invests in leadership development for its own employees, we believe it is vital to extend this training to the non-profit sector which makes such an important contribution to the strength of our communities."
The three-day course, which provides highly focused learning modules, will have immediate application for each participant. The course curriculum includes feedback on the conferees' leadership style, discussion on strategic planning, and a workshop that teaches how to understand the factors that make people different, and how to turn that understanding into more effective working relationships.
In 1999, the Texaco Management Institute was expanded to two locations, Houston and Washington, D.C.
