Unlock your leadership potential! Leaders have a tremendous impact on organizational culture and performance. Recent studies have found the number one reason for job dissatisfaction and turnover is due to poor organizational leadership. And in this slowly improving economy more employees are leaving their jobs voluntarily than being laid off.* The reason most often cited is not that the employees are overworked or don't get paid enough, but that they feel underappreciated and unchallenged!

Today's leaders must develop new skills to serve as positive role models and provide strategic direction to employees if they hope to achieve exceptional performance and ensure the success of their organizations. The behaviors they personally demonstrate – as well as those they implicitly and explicitly endorse – set the tone for employee behavior throughout the organization.

This high impact program is designed to develop leadership excellence and provide you with the key skills and behaviors that contribute to the success of today's managers and leaders. Taught by a team of experts in the fields of leadership and organizational development, employment law, business ethics and more, this experiential course will provide you with the skills and techniques to expand your leadership ability and create positive outcomes.
