Becoming an effective leader involves acquiring and honing a particular set of skills. Successful managers understand leadership components and how to combine them in just the right way, and they practice what they’ve learned.
The goal of the Principles of Leadership Excellence Certificate Series (PLX) is to provide you with opportunities to learn the skills, behaviors, and knowledge needed for effective, successful leadership.
Inside-Out Leadership Model:
Knowing that the most effective leaders have a clear understanding of themselves, our leadership model takes an inside-out approach.
Reflect and learn about yourself.
Learn to apply methods to your own work.
Use your knowledge to connect with others and apply leadership principles within the context of your organization and the surrounding community.
In this certificate series, you build upon 18 leadership competencies. You learn how to communicate well with your team and respond when challenges arise. And you learn to make changes and adjustments so you don’t lose sight of your goals.
This series is based on adult learning principles.
Interactive learning teaches you how to be a better leader through self-assessment, skill practice, group discussion, and application to your day-to-day work.
You’re encouraged to create connections with fellow participants between sessions - an on-line community life-line.
Engage with our instructors, who have real-world leadership experience in a variety of industries.
MRA encourages you to take the series in sequence because skill sets in each session build upon what is learned in the previous session.
Who Should Attend:
This certificate benefits newly appointed supervisors, managers, and other professionals. Both experienced supervisors who have not had formal management training, as well as staff with management potential who do not yet hold a leadership or management role, find this series invaluable.
