Some organizations invest in basic management training, but few offer effective leadership training—coaching that helps individuals determine their strengths and weaknesses, helps them identify their career and/or organizational goals, and enables them to meet their leadership development goals. This program is designed for professionals seeking to develop effective leadership and management skills and individual contributors within an organization aspiring to positions of increased responsibilities and authority.

This Professional Certificate Program Provides:

  • Opportunities to expand and (re)define your vision on the purpose of business.
  • Strategies for developing emotional intelligence and strategic thinking to improve decision-making skills.
  • Trusting environments to increase creativity, productivity, and morale.
