Since the late 1980’s, Wake Forest Executive Education has been helping professionals gain the business knowledge needed to advance their careers and organizations. We do this by providing relevant, real-world learning opportunities that enhance performance and produce broad, sustainable value. Our purpose is to develop leaders in achieving higher levels of performance, guiding companies in developing the skills needed to lead across cultural and global boundaries, building deep bench strength in organizations for top-level positions (succession planning), improving the retention of key talent, and maximizing financial results.

“To embed service into the firm’s culture, Smith Anderson has built leadership courses and established incentive programs to encourage its employees to give back. The firm worked with Wake Forest University’s Executive Education Program in the School of Business and the Wake Forest Institute on Character and Leadership to develop a custom program tailored specifically to leadership and professionalism in the law. The three-day program was open to each of the firm’s associates and offered training on the purpose, virtues, pressures and practices of leadership, as well as building high-performance teams, managing conflict, giving and receiving feedback, motivating others, and making effective decisions.”
