Instructor for this course

Excellent leadership is a skill that is learned through experience and rigorous study. This course identifies six key leadership practices that guide you to becoming a better leader and empower you to help others become better leaders.

A key component of leadership is creating a vision, but vision alone gets us nowhere.  Leadership is more than planning and execution, it is about delegation, motivation, participation, and bringing together groups and individuals to work together that often do not see eye to eye on everything.  Creating, expanding and maintaining your own ecosystem that supports you as a leader and helps you reach your goals and the goals of your organization, goes far beyond just creating and leading teams to carry out activities.

How you work with others is a key determinant in your future success as a leader.  Even more importantly, you learn the key differences between how to act if you are a leader of leaders as compared to a leader of followers.  And you learn why micromanagement occurs and how to stop it in the workplace. 

Learning Objectives

  • Discover key leadership theories.
  • Explore proven, successful practices of leaders.
  • Identify your own strengths and weaknesses as a leader.
  • Discover how you can become a better leader.
  • Recognize how you can spot good and bad leadership behavior quickly so you can learn from it and intervene to help improve a situation.
