Course Description

 

In partnership with Graceland University.

Why do more than half of all new managers fail within their first two years on the job? It’s all about preparation — or lack of it.

That’s why we designed our Accelerated Leadership Certificate Program. It provides the crucial training that prepares you to effectively navigate the world of management — and avoid the mistakes that could hold you back.

Brought to you by SkillPath in partnership with Graceland University, this ALL-NEW virtual certificate program is a series of 5 LIVE, online, instructor-led sessions that provide you with the essentials you need to grow your management skills at an accelerated pace.

Engaged, active learning: Dynamic 3-hour sessions deliver lively, interactive training daily. Log into sessions from any device and you’ll still have time left in your day to put what you’ve learned into practice. Then if you'd like, you can report back to your instructor and fellow participants the next day to share your experiences and ask any questions you might have. This unique, feedback-enabled format helps to reinforce learning and strengthen your retention of vital concepts — so they stick.

Earn a Professional Certificate: By the end of the week, you’ll have the enhanced skills, knowledge and insights you need to be more successful in your leadership role. And you’ll receive a signed Certificate of Completion, along with a digital eBadge to display your new skills and competencies.
