Leadership is a learned skill. The more you work on it, the bigger your repertoire of skills will be. In this course, you’ll come to understand that the best leaders are always learning! We’ll look at old heroic paradigms of leadership and consider why they may not fit today’s world. We’ll then look at what it takes to lead in a world where everything can’t be known, as well as the skills and behaviors you need to be able to move an idea forward, get others to be part of the effort, and operate successfully.
You’ll have an opportunity to reflect on your own strengths, imagine the kind of leader you want to be, and practice key methods of thinking and acting that help a leader emerge.
