Two Page Course Summary

SUMMARY:

What kind of leader do you want to be? How do you want to be seen as a leader? Can you learn to become a more effective leader? What are your unique learning requirements to develop yourself as a leader? These are important questions.
 
We see leaders as life-long learners. We understand that leadership is a personal resource that needs to be nurtured and developed in order to bring it to the surface. Leadership scholars agree that leadership can be learned and that leadership competencies are best developed over time through a recursive and reflective process. Corporations across North America invest several billion dollars annually in leadership education and development. Foundations of Leadership is an investment in your personal leadership journey.
