Leading with strategic impact

About the course

As a leader’s influence expands, so does their need to sharpen decision-making, conflict resolution and relationship skills.  Via robust, experiential learning frameworks, you’ll refine your unique strategic leadership style and strengthen your ability to innovate and influence across your department or organization.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Deepen self-awareness, recognize personal derailers and gain coping tactics

  • Meet challenges through strengthened relationship skills
