Certificate in Leadership Excellence

An effective leader makes things happen.

An effective leader delivers results and contributes to the success of their organization by leading their teams through difficult and changing times, keeping their teams focused on goals while working together to deliver results. In the business world of today, the way organizations operate, communicate, collaborate and innovate is changing. Business leaders must be able to adapt to these changes. In a recent Chief Learning Officer magazine survey (2014), leadership development was seen as the second most impactful learning need in organizations.

The Certificate in Leadership Excellence is for high potential managers, next generation leaders and small company owners who need to elevate their leadership skills.  The program is focused on developing leaders who meet and exceed goals by translating their organization's strategy into actions that get real results.
