Elevate Certificate Series

Elevate Certificate Series Offerings

The Elevate Certificate Series provides professionals with the necessary leadership, influence and strategic-thinking skills to advance in today’s global, diverse work environment. Courses offered within this series emphasize these three core areas that prove necessary for successful talent development and organizational development, yet place them within a global context.

The Strategic Leader: Leaders in organizations often discuss the need for their teams to develop strategic-thinking skills—this runs true for both individual contributors and managers. Similarly, team members often express challenges in fully learning the seemingly invisible and intangible organizational culture, office dynamics and politics necessary to advance and prove effective. This short-course certificate program helps you integrate both strategic thinking and organizational savvy through interactive and practical learning.

The Augmented Leader: Communication, influence and relationships synergize into peak people performance. By boosting both verbal and non-verbal communication, this series helps professionals – from individual contributors to front-line managers – to influence others. Ultimately, these actions build relationships that improve collaboration and productivity in any organization.

The Adaptive Leader: We all know innovation drives organizational success, yet how do we encourage innovative thinking for all individuals—and how do we make it stick? This series uniquely addresses both, as it focuses on how to innovate at the individual and organizational levels, as well as how to handle the resulting changes. Whether you’re an individual contributor or a manager, you will utilize different models and methods to effect change. These shifts, even minor ones, will improve your productivity and team dynamics.

The Dynamic Leader: This exciting series taps into the dynamic forces that drive positive development in your career, professional relationships and overall thought processes. Achieve more success as you leverage the key elements of brain science and interpersonal dynamics in straightforward, effective ways. Address challenges at their root cause and focus on the most effective solutions. Elevate your productivity, people and processes through practical tools presented in this series—as you grow into a truly Dynamic Leader.
