Characteristics of Effective Leadership: Checking the Pulse
Est. Study Time: 1 hours
The heart of leadership is located within the "hearts" of leaders, themselves. Much like the physical organ, the leader's heart can vary in its health. Passion, focused commitment and a sustained drive to deliver one's best are just a few of the factors which help determine the state of the leader's heart. The purpose of this course is twofold: to adequately display the importance of the leader's heart and to explain how to appropriately care for it. Worth 2 PDCs (SHRM).
