Learn the Basics of Business Leadership

At its core, leadership means setting goals, lighting a path, and persuading others to follow. This course will show you how leaders can get their message out in a way that inspires, make the most of their limited time, and build roads to precious resources.

The first part of this Business Leadership: Becoming Management Material Course will teach you about Peter Senge’s five learning disciplines: personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, team learning, and systems thinking. You will also learn about Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership II® model, servant leadership, and the five practices in James Kouzes and Barry Posner's “The Leadership Challenge.” In addition to these leadership models, basic skills (such as building trust, managing change, personal productivity, resolving conflict, solving problems, and leading meetings) will also be covered.

After you complete this course, you will be able to:

  • Define your role as a manager and identify how that role differs from other roles you have had.
  • Understand the management challenge and the new functions of management.
  • Discover how you can prepare for and embrace the forces of change.
  • Identify ways to get you and your workspace organized and get a jump on the next crisis.
  • Identify your leadership profile and explore ways to use this knowledge to improve your success as a manager.
  • Enhance your ability to communicate with others in meetings and through presentations.
