Course Description

Based on the concept that leadership comes from the person – not the position – this seminar focuses on developing the leader in you.

You will identify your strengths as a leader, learn the five key practices of successful leadership, and focus on continued development. There will be an emphasis on building self-confidence and applying your learning to your day-to-day professional life.
