The Self-Development Lab (SDL) is an incredible resource for Rotman students to participate in to develop and nurture the communicative, interactive and interpersonal skills essential to be a collaborative problem solver and decision maker in the workplace.
Unique to Rotman, the SDL offers an extensive schedule of workshops designed to help you express yourself effectively, understand your own motivations and those of others, and achieve your goals in complex, high-stakes environments. You will receive personalized feedback on your behavioural performance, communication style, and personal presence in a series of intensive, individual coaching sessions and small group workshops.
The skills developed within the SDL are the perfect compliment to the knowledge and set of technical, analytical and targeted problem solving skills (both know-what and know-how) that are the main areas being developed in the classroom.
Since the launch of the Lab, our students have consistently reported learning some of the most impactful and valuable skills in their student experience for the real world.
You can learn more about the Self-Development Lab on our website.
The SDL is directed by Maja Djikic, PhD. She is a psychologist specializing in the field of personality development and was a post-doctoral fellow with Desautels Centre for Integrative Thinking (Rotman School of Management) and Psychology Department at Harvard University.
