Program Details

The 144-hour Leadership and Change Certificate is designed for individuals preparing for more senior or advanced leadership roles in their organization. This program will be of interest to individuals who want to nurture their own leadership character and competencies and be agents of change.

Leaders are called upon to respond to new challenges in new ways. Bureaucratic, mechanistic and traditional business thinking models and frames of reference no longer work for the 21st century. This applied leadership certificate is designed to enhance the character and competencies of learners and future leaders in five critical areas: enhancing personal credibility and authenticity; building team commitment; becoming positive change agents; building a community of learners and aligning systems, values, processes and structure to deliver results consistently.

Learners participate in a blend of three online courses and an online residency capstone.

From day one, the Leadership and Change Certificate course material helped me to examine the ways I have been showing up as a leader in my organization. By reframing my old beliefs about leadership, I have been able to make immediate and tangible changes in the way I approach challenges and engage with and support my team. The instructor, Dr. Stan Amaladas, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with the subject matter and helps learners to apply what they are learning in their own lives.  I highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested in expanding their competency as a leader in a world that is ever changing!
