Leadership & Management Certificate

Leaders at table

There are many schools of thought concerning leadership. If you believe that within the scope of every job and position, the potential for leadership not only exists, but is demanded, this program is for you. Whether you are a supervisor, manager, team or project leader, or someone who wants to enhance their leadership and management abilities, this certificate program will focus on a variety of skills that enable you to become a better leader and manager. Leadership ability is not bestowed by high rank or title; it is an ability to motivate and influence others, to instill vision and purpose, and to guide others to accomplish the overarching goals of the organization.

This program is offered in Portsmouth, Manchester, and Lincoln. The core program consists of the High Performing Leadership Residential Program, Applied Leadership Institute, or one of the two Women's Leadership retreats, plus three electives chosen from a variety of topics. The program provides an opportunity for you to explore the attributes of leadership and management that will enhance your skills, knowledge, and capabilities as a leader. You are required to complete the program within two years. For those wishing to complete the program sooner, sufficient topics are offered each year.

Certificate requires completion within a two year period.
