About This Course

Many people think effective leadership is defined by knowledge and skills, but the energy you exude to drive performance is just as critical. This course helps participants gain an introspective approach to positive leadership and frameworks to become a more positive, effective leader.

During the course, you will explore how to apply positive leadership principles to inspire new levels of employee engagement and accomplishment at your organization. Activities in the course will introduce key principles, help you assess your current capabilities, and help you explore positive leadership in action through relevant case studies.

As you begin to understand the power of positive leadership, you will share ideas with your peers about how to create a culture of positivity, engagement, and empowerment.
