To enhance and provide depth to the Lehigh managerial skill set.
The *Essential Management Certificate program is designed to provide managers with vital competencies essential to fulfilling their demanding roles at Lehigh University.
People are the University’s most valuable asset. Directing, engaging, empowering, encouraging, and inspiring staff to their performance potential is a key responsibility of the manager’s role. The Essential Management Certificate will prepare managers to fulfill that ongoing and challenging responsibility.
The certificate program involves five components and a follow up session to help promote continuous enhancement of the vital competencies. Five topics are presented in eight days over eight months. The topics are:
The Case for High Performance
Discovering the Leader in You
Practices of Successful Leaders (this topic spans three days)
Engagement: Linking Communication to Leading
Performance Management: Linking Communication to Managing
