Boost Your Career: Become an Effective Leader and Team Builder
The catalyst for long-term success in any organization is leadership, and the ability to create and cultivate high-performance teams. As important as functional business skills are — finance, operations, marketing, human resources — long-term trends indicate a very strong need for “people” skills. Numerous articles in publications from INC. and Fast Company to the Harvard Business Review highlight the need for (and the gap in) leadership, team building, and people skills.
Employers across numerous industries, and in businesses and nonprofits large and small are placing increased emphasis on leadership and team development. In entrepreneurial settings, it is a highly coveted skill set.
Antioch University is a pioneer in learner-centered education reflecting the importance of social, economic, and environmental sustainability: often referred to as the “triple bottom line.” Make. Difference in the world. Advance your knowledge of leadership and team development to become an effective and innovative leader, decision-maker, and strategist in forward-thinking businesses and nonprofit organizations.
