Managerial Leadership

Managerial Leadership is designed to help you unlock your full potential as a leader so that you can create a culture of innovation, adaptability, and growth. With this badge, you will gain a deeper understanding of emotional intelligence to help you manage your own emotions and respond effectively to the emotions of others, making you a more effective and influential leader. You will also learn how to embrace your unique leadership style to effectively navigate challenging circumstances and team dynamics.

  • Understand emotional intelligence and your unique leadership style.
  • Topics include personal leadership style, personal brand, design thinking, emotional intelligence, and agile leadership.
  • Individuals who take this badge will be tasked with a Leadership Opportunity Challenge as an opportunity to transfer the knowledge, skills and attitudes learned within the program to authentic workplace situations.

What is a Digital badge

Carefully curated learning activities that provide learners with opportunities to gain specific skills or competencies that are workforce relevant and valued by employers, without enrolling in a credential program. The outcome can be shared digitally and allows employers to easily identify candidates who have mastered a specific skill set for success in their industry.

What to expect from the program

This is an online program taught in real-time with instructors skilled in leadership and management with practical organizational experience. Self-paced activities complement the virtual lectures and include simulations, on-the-job scenarios, and relevant reading assignments. The badge concludes with a capstone presentation that incorporates learning material into an authentic workplace situation.

What I liked about the delivery of this program is that it can be done online and while working (if your employer agrees). The instructors are all very personable, approachable, and flexible when working with an individual’s personal schedule. Each of the badges provides a great foundation of skills and knowledge to anyone currently a manager or pursuing a management position. The program has given me confidence and understanding of my role in our organization, advancing my leadership skills.
