Increasingly, the modern world requires leadership, rather than just management. To lead is to innovate, inspire and influence others to do the same. People who aspire to be a great leader care about the people around them, show drive, energy, determination, self-discipline, willpower, and are willing to take risks. If this is you, then you have the character of a leader. Through these courses you will be able to clearly understand your own leadership style and discover the tools needed to begin expanding your leadership capacity at any level within your organization and community.
Each course also includes 2 half-hour sessions with the instructor one-on-one for personal mentorship.
