In times of rapidly changing business contexts and globalized work, managers depend more than ever on their subordinates to get results. Employees may thus represent both a key resource and a liability for managerial success. Tapping the full potential of employees, however, may require leadership and people management skills that stretch beyond ordinary managerial competencies.
Economic, social and organizational environments are changing faster and more unpredictably than ever and with that, the role of leadership is evolving.
We believe that leaders will achieve results through fostering agile, flexible and innovative organizational capabilities, transforming corporate culture and empowering your leadership to inspire action.
This course aims to provide you with inspiration, hands-on tools, and knowledge that may enhance your emotional and leadership skills for managerial results.
This certificate course counts towards the Diploma in Advanced Management.
