Leadership

If you’re moving people from one place to another, you’re a leader. Some leaders push. Others pull. The really good ones motivate the people they lead – really help them to develop a fired enthusiasm for the task at hand and for the work overall. Leadership means inspiring a passion that is truly contagious. You will develop this kind of motivation in your staff and use it in the best way possible.

How do great leaders inspire others? There are many answers. You’ll come up with your own answers in these classes. By focusing on your skills to move others (Leadership) and take care of the details of running part or all of an organization (Management), you will develop the formula that’s right for you – a balance between taking care of people and things.
