Evolve your leadership style to lead better and motivate others to accomplish your company's goals.

What You'll Learn

Think of the leaders you most admire. They seem to easily juggle competing demands, confidently motivate their teams to achieve optimum results, effectively navigate across the organization, and never lose their composure. These executives make the job look simple—but it’s not.

Designed to help managers become more effective leaders, this four-day online program delves into the fundamentals of managing yourself, leading teams, and motivating others to accomplish your company’s goals.

Through relevant readings, case discussions, and introspective exercises, you will gain a broader and deeper understanding of organizational culture and dynamics, management best practices, the role of the manager, and the nature of influence. As you explore your own personality, strengths, and weaknesses, you will begin to evolve a leadership style that is uniquely yours. You will return to work with newfound confidence and an action plan for continuing your growth as a leader.

Program Benefits

  • Improve your performance by strengthening your management skills
  • Manage your team, your boss, and your colleagues more effectively
  • Develop a management style that suits your unique personality
  • Handle difficult management situations with greater certainty in your decisions
  • Earn a digital Certificate of Participation from the Harvard Division of Continuing Education

Topics Covered

  • Distinguishing management myth from reality
  • Understanding the motivations of colleagues and competitors
  • Recognizing strengths and blind spots in yourself and others
  • Building emotional intelligence to communicate effectively
  • Influencing others from a position of authority—or without authority
  • Managing within organizational hierarchies
  • Earning trust and building relationships
  • Leading for long-term results

After you enroll, you will receive information on the required reading that should be completed before the program begins.

Note: All program content will be delivered live and will not be recorded.

Who Should Enroll
