The course explores four different aspects of leadership:

  • Getting Started with Leadership – how you can best navigate your “world of work”, and the organisational situation you are operating within, manage your stakeholders, and understand what leadership means.
  • Stepping Up: Preparing Yourself for Leadership – including issues such as building your self-awareness, when should you ‘step in’ as a leader, how you align with your boss, and also manage your energy and well-being as a leader.
  • Stepping Up: Leading Others – understanding best-practice in team leadership, how you delegate and engage your team members, and achieve a good balance between challenge and support as a leader.
  • Influencing the Organisation – the wider, cross-functional perspective of leadership, managing complex stakeholder and matrix environments, and ‘nudging’ cultural change.

The course is available now through the global learning platform Coursera:
