Build the Power Skills that Foster a Positive Workplace

Earn our Professional Certificate in ” Re-Imagining Leadership”

Our education and professional experiences focus on technical, how to do it, skills. So, we progress from doer to manager to leader, primarily based on our technical competencies. This model of promotion has been in use for decades, but it is now obsolete. Few of us intentionally learn soft skills along the way, finding ourselves a bit overwhelmed when asked to work in complex teams or to assume a managerial or leadership role.

Employers have recognized the value of personality type, adaptability and flexibility in responding to change, emotional intelligence, trust, psychological safety, conflict management and the ability to manage time, stress and energy to meet organizational needs. None of these are technical skills. They are the soft skills, probably the most difficult skills to assess and learn – but critical to professional, and life, success. In fact, they are now being renamed Power Skills. Do you have what you need to succeed?

Our Re-Imagining Leadership Professional Certificate offers an extraordinary opportunity to spend some quality time with yourself to assess your current level of soft skills, clearly define your core self, and build soft skills which are essential to professional, not to mention life, success.

Program Endorsement

“I took ENCE 665 at the University of Maryland as part of my doctorate, which is the basis for the Leadership series curriculum. The experience was eye opening to say the least. I benefited from it in profound ways, both personally and professionally; and have regularly used and shared the knowledge and skills with my colleagues as a Director at Medtronic. I highly recommend this certificate to everyone if you want to improve your effectiveness!”       – Michael O’Connor, PhD, PMP , Director Strategy & Project Management, Medtronic
