Course Details

Leadership is critical for success in organizations and in leading and managing teams. It is needed at all levels, not only at the top. There are many leadership theories and each definition is different. One definition of leadership is: "Motivating, organizing and influencing a group of people to achieve a common goal." Some say leaders are born; however, we all possess leadership traits. Amongst other qualities, effective leaders possess conceptual skills and social influence, have clear vision and values, demonstrate consistent behaviors and communicate well. To be effective, these traits and abilities must be cultivated. Through discussion, lecture, and interactive exercise, this course helps you acquire the concepts of various leadership theories, perspectives, orientations, skills, tools and practical actions needed to lead effectively.
