About this course
Leadership is a commonly used term, mostly referred to as a personal quality in a person holding a position of stewardship. According to Professor Warren Bennis, the founding Chairman of the Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California: “Leadership is a function of knowing yourself, having a vision that is well communicated, building trust among colleagues, and taking effective action to realize your own leadership potential."
Therefore, true leadership requires several traits in a person, some of which are innate qualities, and many have the potential to be developed with knowledge, experience and good practice. Some of those qualities are subtler than others, and require not only applying common sense, but also sensibility. This course is designed to sensitize the person to the minimum requirements, skills and tactics that help him/her develop his leadership qualities, particularly with relevance to the work environment.
Organizations’ and companies’ employees who require support in building their capacity to lead teams, achieve major deliverables or manage complex matters and work requirements. This requires at least a supervisory level of responsibility in the organization or company. The course is general and is not limited to any area of specialization.
