Business Leadership (GC)
The certificate focuses on both understanding and practicing the skills critical to effective performance as a leader in any organization, as well as opportunities for learning interaction with successful leaders. These skills include employing effective communication strategies; applying techniques that effectively manage group and individual dynamics; practicing and promoting innovation; and developing successful negotiation tactics to meet the organizations’ goals.
This course is designed to combine the why of leadership thinking with the how of leadership skill development. The class is both philosophical and practical, so you will have to both think and apply what you are learning. The course will provide students with opportunities to use theories to analyze leader behaviors, and with personal awareness and development. You will come out of the class with a Leadership Development Plan of your own to help you apply the class to your own development as a leader and manager.
