Leadership and Management for Women in Business
About this course
Leaders are people who can change the thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors of the people around them. Successful organizations must have leaders who take them in the right direction. While not all leaders are managers or even occupy positions of authority, managers are often leaders for the employees who report to them.
While companies with more women in leadership positions tend to see benefits to their bottom line, gender stereotypes and biases can make it difficult for women to become recognized as leaders and to advance into managerial or executive positions at work.
This course reviews various qualities of leaders and styles of leadership and management. It also reviews common managerial challenges and introduces techniques, strategies, and best practices to overcome those obstacles.
- Identify common leadership bases, skills, and qualities
- Describe the major theories of leadership
- Discuss types of leadership and their advantages and disadvantages
- Differentiate between leadership, management, and administration
