Course Description

This course is about becoming a great leader. Great leaders know how to hire great individuals, form and empower teams, and delegate to those teams appropriately. Working together with the team, they envision what the organization should be and inspire others to help execute the strategy that will take them there. And they see themselves as servants to the team and to the organization. These are some of the traits of the best leaders in business, industry and the military. It is these traits and much more that are explored in this course. Those who are in positions of technical leadership at work or wish to consider a leadership role in the future should consider taking this course.
