Certificate in Business Leadership


The ability to lead at the organisational level is a key leadership skill. Leading at this level is more complex than leading yourself or leading a team. At the organisational level, leaders have responsibility for creating an environment that allows all employees to feel engaged and committed, while also helping to ensure the financial success of the business and meeting the needs of a wide array of stakeholders, including shareholders, investors, customers, partners etc.

Leadership at the organisational level requires a broader and deeper understanding of the factors that impact organisational culture, innovation and performance. It requires a more strategic outlook and a future focus.

This course is designed to help participants effectively navigate across the organisation. In this course, participants will learn tools and best practices in leadership across finance; effective meetings; retention, development and engagement of the workforce; talent management and succession planning; managing diversity; fostering creativity and innovation; leading change; and building internal and external networks.

Please Note: The registration fee provides candidates with unlimited access to the course materials for 12 months from the date of enrolment.
