“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.”
John Buchan

This program is designed to help those who already are in positions of leadership or who are aspiring to such a position, to explore how to navigate the most critical aspect of leadership, working with others. A leader is someone who gets the work done, accomplishes the mission, through others. Our right to be called “leader” is earned over time and demands our continued development in honing our skills or as John F. Kennedy said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”


This program will cover the following topics:

  • Connecting staff you lead to the mission
  • Understanding the ways in which staff can be motivated and your own style of motivation
  • The power and importance of delegation
  • Empowering your staff
  • Developing yourself as a leader and becoming someone others choose to follow


This program is one of 3 possible elective programs for the Leadership Development Certificate.
