Course Overview.

The Essentials for Leadership Certificate program is an experiential and interactive 24-hour program designed to help build a solid foundation to increase communication and understanding between leaders and their teams. Each course is designed to be innovative and fresh, providing real solutions to real workplace situations without the boring data that we have all heard before.

The premise of this certificate is simple: In theory everything works. But it’s the implementation and follow through that actually matters. You can google many ways to be a better leader, but the question is… how do you actually do it and what are tried and true methods that actually work?

Course Curriculum.

Capitalizing on the DISC tool, the Essentials for Leadership Certificate will cover the following curriculum for being a genuine leader in today’s workplace:

Finding Passion at Work

  • learn to build trust and credibility within their teams by being more vulnerable and empathic.
  • learn to take action and be accountable even when it doesn’t feel possible or comfortable.

Presenting Ideas with a Purpose

  • craft a confident public speaking presence by getting to practice on the spot interactions as well as rehearsed presentations that inspire. Considering that public speaking is the number one fear of all Canadians, it only makes sense that a leader should have as much practice as possible to remove that fear. The ideas learned in this session will be used in subsequent sessions, with each participant asked to build their old own Ted Talk at the end of the course!

Communicating with a Purpose

  • gain insight into your own communication styles and learn the effects of their preferences on others’ styles.
  • facilitate team interactions with positivity, energy and will develop techniques to manage negative interactions.
