In a unique partnership to build a cadre of global leaders, Stevens Institute for Technical Leadership and Amway, the $7 billion worldwide direct-selling company, are collaborating on providing key Amway personnel with twenty-first century leadership skills. Instructor-led online modules are delivered over 18 months to Amway employees in the US and China by Stevens' faculty. Before entering online classrooms—where they are divided into virtual leadership teams—Amway participants complete a series of web-based assessment tools to provide insight into how their personalities and behavior align with the company’s goals and their own development. Employees then engage in online modules, starting with how to build self-awareness, followed by how to lead innovation and change,Amway personnel learn about decision-making, coaching and mentoring, and strategic leadership. Along the way, Stevens’ faculty coach participants to embrace a path to leadership at Amway.
