This four-week online course is for leaders and those who are responsible for human resources, who are interested in learning how they can develop and retain the talent they will need as they cope with current shutdown challenges while concurrently positioning their organizations to be future-ready. You will learn an organization-wide strategy to lead, coach and transform employee development.

These assignments and discussions make topics relevant because you will apply learning to your organizational situation.

During this course, you will learn the skills and apply proven methods to mobilize the energy and commitment of your management teams that transform initiatives into operational success.
