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 one five-day residency.
B.C. secondary school graduation, or equivalent, or 19 years of age and out of secondary school for at least one year as of the first day of classes.
Minimum two years of work experience in a position of responsibility, such as supervisor, manager, project or team leader.
Learners must pass all courses with a minimum grade of 70% in each to receive the Certificate.
Please note: this program includes a five-day, in-person residency after completion of the three distance courses.
