Leadership means many things to many people. In this course we will explore the characteristics of a leader that enable one to act according to this partial definition from Business Dictionary:
“A leader steps up in times of crisis, and is able to think and act creatively in difficult situations.”
Leaders need not be in a position of authority as a leader gets things done through influence. Building strong working relationships across the organization creates a network of key people to move the leader’s vision forward efficiently and effectively. In subsequent modules we will explore skills necessary for becoming a successful leader.
