 Today, leadership is not just a top-down idea. Leadership is needed at every level of every organization to drive innovation and performance and stay competitive in a fast-changing world.

Your success is as much a result of your team's capacity for action as it is a function of your knowledge and abilities. The Leadership and Influence program will develop your management and interpersonal skills so you can more effectively collaborate with and inspire others toward a common goal.
