environment, conflict management, organizational structure, power and politics, culture and many
other organizational aspects are all affected by the actions of leadership. This course looks at
leadership from that perspective, and provides participants with the opportunity to gain a solid
understanding of leadership and how to shape it and establish the right style of leadership that
empowers organizations and engenders outstanding results.
