Course: Leading Through Complexity
Note: This certificate is non-credit but it does qualify for continuing education units.
Have you noticed how traditional approaches to leadership are becoming less effective? Or how much complexity your team will need to master over the next 5 years? How will you prepare your workers for jobs that do not yet exist and for an economy that is just emerging? The need for complex leadership has never been greater in public service or private enterprise. This unique course will give you an edge to insure your organization is future-ready.
Learning Outcomes: participants will learn to:
:: Relate complexity science to dynamic leadership challenges
:: Explain how complexity requires organizations to focus on emergent networks, not just silos
:: Assess your own leadership behavior in contexts of complexity
:: Apply the concepts directly to a current organization challenge
