Active Leadership Blended

GK# 8939

Course Overview


Intense competition coupled with flattened hierarchies, multi-dimensional teams, and a diverse working environment characterize today's business climate. This reality requires a repertoire of leadership practices and skills for anyone responsible for getting results with and through others. Recent studies confirm the leader is the prime factor for creating a productive work environment and contributing to higher employee retention.

The Active Leadership program provides the concepts and the practices of leadership in a high-impact learning environment to help leaders effectively coach, empower, and lead individuals and teams to higher levels of performance.
