Strategies for Effective Leadership

Effective leadership is vital at every level in an organization. Your legacy is determined by what kind of leader you are throughout your career–how you understand your own capability and leadership style, how you understand and influence the people you lead, and your impact on the organization you work for.

This powerful course focuses on the most compelling challenges you’ll face as a leader and offers practical, applied strategies for success. Through a combination of individual assessments, classroom lecture, and interactive case analyses, you’ll learn concepts and tools for success that you can implement immediately.
