Personal branding is critical for today’s executive—it distinguishes you as a competent authority, helps you establish your own goals for continuous improvement, and empowers you to lead change in your organization through effective management of yourself and others. If you’re looking to establish yourself in a leadership role and align your actions and behaviors with how you want to be perceived, this course is for you.

In this course, you’ll understand how to manage teams and foster effective decision-making, create and communicate a vision for workplace change, build coalitions that work, master the art of self-management, develop and manage your executive personal brand, and learn to become a more persuasive presenter.

When you complete this course, you’ll leave with a thorough understanding of how your leadership can make an impact on your organization, a set of sharpened skills to help you accomplish your goals, and most of all, you’ll learn how to develop your own unique strengths.
