Each of the three courses in the leadership certificate can be taken independently. However, taken together they provide a holistic approach to a lifelong leadership development practice. We start with the premise that leadership must begin with you, requires mobilizing and engaging others to do difficult work, and produces positive change in systems, communities, and organizations. Through this lens, the certificate is organized into three courses:

  • Leading Self: Your DiSC Leadership Style
  • Leading Teams: Building High Performing Teams
  • Leading Systems: The Art and Practice of Influencing Without Authority

What is the benefit to earning this certificate?

At its best, leadership development is a comprehensive, multi-faceted, and life-long learning process. This process cultivates your increased self-awareness, provides you tools to create the best possible environments for your teams to flourish, and translates to ways you can lead positive change in systems and communities. You will learn about all of these components in each of our three certificate courses, but together you will see how leading self, leading teams, and leading systems all work together to create a lifelong process of building and improving your leadership capabilities.
