Professional Certificate in Leadership Essentials for Engineers
The majority of challenges that organizations face are technology related. Given the growing importance of technology, the demand for leaders with an engineering background will probably rise. Already a quarter of the CEOs of the world’s 100 largest corporations have engineering degrees.
Engineers have the potential to be good leaders. They are analytical and tech-savvy. They are comfortable with figures. They often have a can-do attitude. However, these characteristics alone are not enough to make engineers effective leaders.
In this program, you will learn that a good leader needs at least three mindsets, supporting the development of essential leadership skills:
These three mindsets are indispensable for good leaders. They sometimes conflict and they often require completely different skills. In this program, you will become familiarized with each of these mindsets and discover how they can support you as a leader.
By completing this certificate, you will improve your leadership skills through tasks that help you develop a managerial summary of a business situation analysis to inform an effective decision, use a set of cohesive strategies for dealing with stakeholders, and frame your communication.
