Course aim

This course is designedto reclaim the essentials of effective leadership by helping leaders understand the critical importance of building support among stakeholder groups. It provides a construct through which leaders can understand stakeholder motivations, and identify the actions, and the leadership skills necessary to manage stakeholder commitment to business strategies and direction in a global multi-cultural business environment. Through practical examples, case studies, and experiential in-class learning activities, participants will build a foundation for their own leadership style. The program includes discussion of the most well-researched global leadership assessment technologies and development tools, and concludes by utilizing a self-assessment leadership skills indicator through which participants gain insights about their own leadership skills, strengths and weaknesses, and learn how to begin the journey of leadership skill development.
