    Gain the leadership skills highly valued and needed to perform in the digital age with practical tools to use in real time, using workplace challenges you are currently experiencing.

    This course, part of the Digital Leadership MicroMasters program, begins with a focus on the trends of the digital age and how they shape your industry, your organization and your career no matter what job or sector you work. We then focus on the capabilities needed to both successfully grow your own career and effectively lead individuals, teams and organizations.

    Using current workplace challenges you will learn how to work within the digital age: developing unique skills to execute and innovate, build trust, lead virtual teams, collaborate, negotiate and managing conflict, adapt and learn from experience, and drive continuous change. 

    You will learn about and practice skills such as:

    • leveraging a network of relationships;
    • using conflict to drive creativity;
    • working across boundaries;
    • coming to a common core purpose across competing agendas and metrics;
    • leading change through experimentation and implementation.

    No previous courses in leadership or organization behavior are required. We will begin the journey from where you are and will use innovative cases, assessments, simulations, etc.  Leadership is fun and so is the process we use to advance your capabilities.
