This program is designed to attract persons who are already engaged in, or are preparing for, leadership roles in an organization. A student who is already in a leadership or other management level position will be able to expand his/her level of effective leadership skills.
A student not currently in a first level management role will develop leadership skills and increase the chance of promotion.
Traditionally, a supervisor plans, organizes, directs, and coordinates activities of non-management employees in various occupational settings; trains and evaluates employees under her or his authority; implements policy decisions and work systems established by upper management; and facilitates communication and work flow.
In addition to traditional supervisory skills and practices, today’s leaders must understand system(s), variation, and continuous improvement processes; be facilitators rather than bosses; effectively manage work place diversity; help organizations adapt to change and encourage innovation; display leadership skills; use critical thinking skills; and use communication skills appropriate to a team environment.
