Leadership Programs - EMERITUS Institute of Management

Leadership: People, Teams and Organizations

A key task when leading is to assemble the skills, talents, and resources of individuals and groups to solve problems and create new opportunities. A leader must manage people, information, and processes to accomplish organizational goals; a leader must make things happen, and often under conditions or timeframes that are not of their choosing.

The successful execution of these tasks requires an array of leadership skills including the diagnosis of problems, making effective decisions, influencing and motivating others, managing the diversity of our personal contacts, optimizing cross-functional teams, driving culture and change, and negotiating with others effectively, while always maintaining ethics and integrity
