Leadership and Management Certificate Training Program | Weatherhead School at Case Western Reserve University

Leadership and Management Certificate Program

Leaders are made. Not born. And in times of complexity and change, the qualities that define leadership are needed more than ever before. Adaptive leaders focus on what’s next. They pivot short-term problems to develop strategies for long-term successes; they lead with Emotional Intelligence and communicate collaborative, impactful solutions to energize their organizations. These qualities that create and define emerging leaders can be taught. This certificate focuses on areas that will help participants’ develop intentional communication, heighten leadership skills, maximize and engage resources and scale client experience.

This unique virtual certificate offers programs that are shorter, 90 minute to one-half day sessions, with self-paced pre- and post-work.
