Leadership is not reducible to telling others what to do and expecting those things to happen, but good leadership manifests in four dimensions: leading self, leading others, leading change, and leading an organization. A better understanding of those areas can help foster the ability to lead well, not only within the context of business but within any field where leadership is needed. Worth 2 PDCs (SHRM).
In successful businesses, accountability and performance cannot be overlooked or ignored. This course explores the importance of communication across responsibility centers and demonstrates the necessity of offering and receiving accurate information – particularly as it relates to data auditing, financial planning, and accounting processes.
