Taking your skills to the next level
Outstanding results come when you can skillfully and effectively combine your leadership and your management skills. At the basic level, leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal while management is concerned with planning, organizing, directing and controlling the steps to get there. Both are mutually interdependent in the achievement of results. The secret to achieving "WOW" results is to consciously and strategically marry the two seamlessly into a winning strategy to get there.
This course will help you take stock of your strengths and areas for improvement in both the practice of leadership and of management. Throughout this largely experiential program, you will learn new ways to communicate, solve problems and make decisions. Your visioning and critical thinking skills will be put the test as well as your capacity to inspire, to delegate, to manage time and to lead change. Tools and best practices will be shared.
