Leadership Certificate Course: The Art & Science of Leadership

The Art and Science of Leadership

As organizations realize the importance of employee engagement, they are looking towards new ways of inspiring and motivating their staff. Two strategic areas that are having a tremendous impact directly involve coaching: managers are doing more coaching as a practice is being scaled across organizations. Without great and frequent coaching, it's difficult to ask employees to set goals flexibility and often, to help employees stretch their jobs, and to give them greater responsibility and autonomy while demanding more expertise and judgement from them.

Emotional and Social Intelligence

In the Art of Science of Leadership program you will acquire the emotional and social intelligence skills needed to become a more mindful, empathetic, coaching leader by drawing on real-world evidence for more meaningful coaching practices and dialogues. Acquiring these skills does not happen by accident or all at once. Such fundamental change requires a supportive environment that enables learning and openness to feedback.  This program does all of that and so much more!
