Programs for Groups & Individuals

“My favorite part of the Certificate Program was, hands down, the cross-disciplinary faculty. What remarkable minds! I gained multiple new lenses through which to view workplace challenges. I felt so lucky to have exposure and access to these extraordinary educators. The HDO faculty is world-class. I can’t stop raving.”

Sarah Gerichten, Director of Marketing, Square Root, Inc.

Create Your Competitive Advantage

HDO Professional Training brings together UT Austin’s finest researchers to provide a transformative educational experience for current and aspiring leaders.

Drawing on an innovative combination of the humanities, behavioral sciences, and social sciences, our programs meet a need not addressed by existing education options: providing a deep understanding of people, the key components of any organization.

Technical expertise in a particular domain is a necessary element for workplace success. However, recognizing behaviors and motivations, communicating across organizations and cultures, and thinking strategically to solve complex problems – a few examples of core competencies developed in HDO – are the skills that create transformational leaders.

Programs for Individuals

Join us for a one-day seminar, a four-day certificate program, or create your own training experience. Whatever path you choose, our programs give you the knowledge, the skills, and the network to create your competitive advantage.

Programs for Groups

Are you ready to transform your team? HDO Professional Training offers several options for groups small and large. Our staff and faculty will work with your team to create an impactful, unique, and enjoyable learning experience.

Having hands-on application during the seminar with resources available for continued use and practicing the skills presented in class is fantastic. This will enable me to utilize the things I learned in the course and help solidify them as skills I use going forward in my job. The seminar really met the mark. I would love to spend more time on this topic.
