TROY — Walsh College will launch a new leadership certification program aimed at mid-level managers and recently promoted leaders from small and mid-sized companies to begin in January.
Leadership-YOU is an ideal professional development program for companies that don’t have need for on-site custom training or which do not provide in-house leadership training, but whose leaders of today want to invest in grooming tomorrow’s leaders.
“The practical success of leaders is rooted in their ability to blend knowledge and skills in a cycle of consistent results achieved through a highly, motivated team of committed players,” says Lee Meadows, who is one of the instructors.
“It has always been my personal vision to make the world a better place to work, one leader at a time,” adds Diane Morrison, other instructor of the course. “The most important relationship a leader has in the workplace is the one with his/her employees. This course will provide leaders with the practical skills and knowledge to improve how they motivate people and obtain results.”
The course itinerary includes sessions on delegation, conflict management and resolution, coaching for performance, emotional intelligence, giving and receiving feedback and partnering for performance.
The 2015 course takes place on seven twice-monthly sessions beginning Jan. 8 and concluding April 9. For information on cost and registration, visit walshcollege.edu/leadershipyou.
