What makes a truly great leader?

Whether you are new to a leadership role or have been leading teams for many years, there is so much to learn about making an impact at our workplace. There are certain characteristics that take a leader from average to great. Great leaders are people of integrity who live their lives in a way that inspires their teams to do and be their best.  

In the program, Leading with Integrity, you will learn the influential tools of inspirational, ethical and conscientious leadership. We will define integrity and learn the value of inspirational leadership. We will explore the concept of servant leadership and understand our power to influence culture change in our workplace. Through a discussion of mission and values, you will create personal values and missions of your own and understand why workplace values matter.

In a section dedicated to leading ethically and thoughtfully, you will learn the difference between ethics and morals. You will examine purposeful strategic planning methods. You will also learn the critical skill of courageous communication.

This course can be taken individually or as part of the Supervisory Management Certificate Program. This is an elective course. Take any six days of electives plus the three core courses to complete your certificate.


Leading with Integrity

Who Should Attend

Leaders, and aspiring leaders, supervisors, and managers.


Let’s face it—expertise in a chosen career field doesn’t automatically make someone a good supervisor. Supervisors must learn important soft skills to confidently manage a team of people and do it well.

If you’ve been promoted to supervisor but aren’t sure you have the skills to supervise well; if you’re looking to advance into a supervisor position; or if you’ve been supervising a team for a while and have struggled through conflict and communication issues, a certificate in supervisory management may be just what you need!

Working for this certificate will help you:

  • Gain confidence in your leadership skills
  • Communicate better with your team
  • Encourage your team to be more productive
  • Deal with conflict effectively
  • Find success and advance toward your career goals

Your instructors are experts in management and leadership who will share their knowledge, experiences, and best practices face to face. Learn and share insights with other students to really make the most of the seminars.

How the Certificate Works:

You’ll take three, 2-day core classes covering the most important supervisory skills (Learning to Lead; Orientation, Time Management, and Delegation; Employee Evaluation and Performance Management), plus six more days of electives in 1- or 2-day format that enhances specific skills you want to build on. 

Each 2-day seminar earns you 1.3 Continuing Education Units (CEUs); each 1-day seminar earns you 0.65 CEUs. A total of 7.8 CEUs is required to earn your certificate. You can take up to five years to complete the program.

Not interested in taking the whole certificate? You can also take classes individually.
