After Alfreda Bradley-Coar graduated from General Electric’s new manager development course as a mid-level inside counsel some years ago, she was so inspired that she went on to get her MBA. Alfreda is now the general counsel, U.S. & Canada, of GE Healthcare. “I’ve learned to think like a business person,” she says.
Of course, most companies don’t have entire campuses devoted to ongoing training like General Electric. And even the largest and most forward thinking employers rarely create advancement training designed specifically for their attorneys.
