Course description

Organizational Leadership explores the roles leaders must embrace to run a division, department, or organization: as a beacon who sets direction; an architect who aligns talent, systems and structure, and culture; and a catalyst who drives innovation and change. Through self-assessments, peer feedback, and projects applied to your own work, you'll gain a clearer understanding of your leadership style and how to prepare for the next phase of your leadership journey.
