About the Leadership Skills Module:
This module addresses the basic personal skills needed to be a successful leader in your organization, profession and community. The series begins with an overview what it takes to be an effective leader – styles, strengths and virtues.
Other classes address the common complaint “how do I find more time?” Students learn how to set priorities, manage time, and focus on activities that are most important to personal and career success.
Finally, since successful leaders must do more than their “day jobs,” students learn how to network inside and outside their organizations, how to share skills and experience by mentoring others, and how to give back to the community.
