"Navigating the Demands of Leadership"

How do you balance the daily struggles and step into a leadership role? What does that look like? What makes a good leader? What does it mean to be at the top of the ladder in an organization and are you ready to assume responsibility for those that you lead? This class will dive into all the aspects of leadership from definition to management.
