The Highlands Group and Endocyte complete their first Endocyte University Cycle

The Highlands Group partnered with biopharmaceutical company Endocyte—a company that maximizes the potential of small molecule drug conjugates (SMDCs) with companion imaging agents—to deliver a year-long Leadership Development University for the company’s directors and managers. This program was customized to build the next generation of leaders in the organization. We created a development process that included individual assessment, classroom and team application, and peer-to-peer coaching. Leaders engaged in topics such as situational leadership, communication and dialogue, emotional intelligence, and change management. One leader sent us a note after graduation saying:


“I wanted to take the time to thank you for all the insightful and immediately applicable knowledge you provided us through our year-long leadership program. I hope I speak for all members of our management team when I say that the techniques, lessons, and tools that you provided us with will prove invaluable and enable us to work better and more effectively as a team moving forward. From a personal perspective, I have been implementing several techniques with my team members and other managers that have been of significant help in negotiating and effectively managing conversations and personal interactions. Thank you for all of your hard work.”
