Welcome to the Becoming an Effective Leader course. 
This online course identifies the main attributes of leadership and shows how these skills can be best utilised in the modern workplace. We look at the leading theories and models concerning leadership (including emotional intelligence, the leadership continuum and situational leadership), and guide you in evaluating your own leadership style.
The course explains how to tell when team members are engaged, and demonstrates best practice in motivation, delegation, mentoring and empowerment.

Is this course for me?
This module is suitable for all those in management and leadership positions. 

The module was created for a private sector audience, but still holds much information that is useful for those in the not-for-profit sector.  We will use feedback on this and other private sector modules to explore contextualisation for the humanitarian sector.
