The course in Leadership Essentials is designed for emerging leaders or those new to a leadership position who are:

  • Junior to mid-level managers
  • Recently promoted to a supervisory role
  • Aspiring supervisors or those preparing to take on a supervisory role for the first time

About the course

“Manager” may be a title that denotes a position of leadership, but “leadership” is a skill set, a knowledge base and a mindset that transcends job titles. Moving into that official leadership role for the first time can be exhilarating, gratifying and intimidating all at once. How do you act as a leader? Where do you start? Start with the basics to build up the essential skills and knowledge you need as a leader.

Leadership Essentials covers a wide range of fundamental concepts, methods and practices designed to help mold leaders responsible for translating the vision, mission, and objectives to an organization’s first-level or departmental employees. With four primary focus areas, the course will provide you with the strategies and techniques for effective leadership in a supervisory role, self- and team-discovery through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Assessment, successfully leading people and processes and using leadership behavior to overcome challenges.
