The word "leader" goes with "people." Leaders are expected to improve human performance, as well as to manage resources. Yet many professionals are promoted to leadership positions because they succeed with numbers and factsnot with people. These professionals soon learn that poor communication skills can undermine credibility and general effectiveness.
Effective leaders must be confident leaders. Such leaders know and trust themselves, and their behavior inspires confidence in others. To feel confident, leaders must interpret their organizational titles in unique, principled, and personally valid terms: Leadership is not a one-size-fits-all role.
Effective Leadership helps you define and internalize your leadership style. You will learn and practice effective communication skills, including Scripting Successful Discussions.
Scientific, technical, and business professionals who have made or who are making the transition to leadership roles in their organizations. Class size is limited to 10.
