Description-Charting Your Course for Leadership Success

Charting Your Course for Leadership Success
Instructor: Leslie McClure, Drexel University
Half-day course - Limited offering (2-3 chapters)

Leadership is a process that does not happen by accident. There are steps you can take throughout your career, including early on, that can help prepare you for leadership roles. This interactive course will provide an introduction to leadership, including topics like setting short- and long-term goals, time management, the importance of mentorship and sponsorship (and how they differ), and how to “dip your foot” into leadership early on. We will also touch on other important skills that can help make the path to leadership smoother.
