About This Course

Welcome to the Leadership & Influence course. 

Clearly, leadership potential exists within each of us. That potential can be triggered by outside events, or it can be learned by exploring ourselves from within. This training takes the latter approach. Once you learn the techniques of true leadership, you will be able to build the confidence it takes to take the lead. The more experience you have acting as a genuine leader, the easier it will be for you. It is never easy to take the lead, as you will need to make decisions and face challenges, but it can become natural and rewarding.

This is a 4-hour, 12-Module, 10-Lesson course complete with audio with text lessons, short case study videos, instructor-host introduction, midway and end of course wrap up videos. There are downloadable PDF worksheets and or handouts for use during the course and future reference after the course. Each lesson module has a multi-question quiz to test your learning of the content covered.

Be certain to take advantage of any BONUS materials provided with this course. There is no set time requirement to complete the course, so you may work at your own pace, logging off to take breaks then logging back on to progress to completion at your convenience. Be certain to take advantage of any discounted subject related courses to fully explore your learning options on our Professional Development Online Training platform.
