Developing the Leader in You – August 3 to September 7

One’s classification or title does not make them a leader. People without anyone “under” them in the organization chart can exhibit exemplary leadership skills without having “supervisor” or “manager” in their title. Leadership is about influence, and the pathway to leadership is about knowing yourself and cultivating a growth mindset. This series is specifically for aspiring and emerging leaders interested in preparing their toolkit for a future in leadership, and those who understand that leadership exists at all levels in an organization. Over this course, you will learn and develop your leadership abilities from where you are currently by expanding your knowledge base and your motivation to lead.
Recommended for any employee interested in leading from where they are and improving their leadership skills, as well as those who aspire to move into a supervisor role. Participants will receive a program certificate upon successful completion of the series.
