Strong leadership is regarded as one of the best predictors of organisational success and critical human capital required for career progression in almost every organisation. However, leadership is also a highly complex and often misunderstood phenomenon. It’s hard to define, but we all know good and bad leadership when we see it.

In this program, you will learn the difference between leadership and management, the importance of understanding others and building empathy and relationships, and gain a better understanding of the different leadership styles you may encounter throughout your career.

Learn through a series of engaging videos, interviews, case studies, quizzes, written reflections, peer feedback, and other self-insight activities. Our instructors and faculty will help you identify your own values and philosophies as a leader, and most importantly, build your self-efficacy, your confidence and belief in your own ability to achieve intended results.
