Program Highlight: Leadership Development
The Leadership Development program is designed for persons who are already engaged in, or are preparing for, leadership roles in an organization.
Traditionally, a supervisor plans, organizes, directs, and coordinates activities of non-management employees in various occupational settings; trains and evaluates employees under her or his authority; implements policy decisions and work systems established by upper management; and facilitates communication and work flow. This program builds on these skills. In addition it prepares future leaders by teaching system(s), variation, and continuous improvement processes; how to be facilitators rather than bosses; effectively managing work place diversity; how to help organizations adapt to change and encourage innovation; leadership skills; critical thinking skills; and communication skills appropriate to a team environment.
Program Highlight: Human Resources
The Human Resources Associate Degree program prepares the learner for success in the dynamic work environments of: employment law, training and development of employees, compensation and benefits administration, labor relations supporting bargaining agreements, and wellness and safety initiatives.
