DescriptionLeadership comes naturally – for a select few. For most it is a skill that requires self-awareness, practice, and diligence. In this course, students will learn what leadership is and what it isn’t, with special focus on teamwork and negotiation skills. In particular, the course will cover leadership styles, emotional and organizational intelligence, decision-making, people savvy, goal setting, conflict resolution, listening and persuasion, and team-building. The content will be delivered through videos and readings, with mastery evaluated through quizzes and peer reviewed assignments, which include developing team charter sand negotiation planning documents.

Additional Note: Students can choose to explore course videos, discussions, and ungraded assignments for free, but they won’t be able to submit graded assignments, earn a certificate, or complete a specialization without paying a $79 fee.
