Servant Leadership

This short course (three class meetings) will dive deep into the principles and practices of servant leadership. Participants will discover how the ego and an inward mindset will not only stymie the growth of a leader but also stress professional and personal relationships. Participants will be encouraged to look honestly at their own relationships at work and at home and consider how they can grow to become the best versions of themselves!

Supervision

One of the biggest talent development hurdles is promoting talented workers to supervisory positions but not giving them the tools to be successful. In this course, learners will develop the ability to provide timely and constructive feedback, motivate others, apply policies and procedures, administer discipline, and evaluate and improve the performance of others. This course is designed to assist new, experienced, and aspiring front-line supervisors and managers with the skills necessary to lead their teams. (3 credits)
