Leadership skills involve a series of behaviors which enable one to influence a group to achieve a common vision or goal. As a new leader, the most important skills to master involve the way you interact with those you lead, using skills that enhance the work relationship between leaders and followers and help you get real, sustainable results in the right way. The four courses in this certificate will focus on providing skills and knowledge to promote success in your new role. As you learn more about yourself as a leader and gather insight into approaches which create supportive leader/follower relationships, you will be able to take the information from each class and apply it immediately in the workplace. Classes include: Understanding Leadership vs Management and Why Each Matters, Leading with Emotional Intelligence, Communication: The Key To Getting Results, and Accountability and Performance Management. Participants will be integrated with students enrolled in the Excellence in Leadership Series which covers these four topics as well as additional topics relevant to leading others. Tuition includes all textbooks.
