" Leadership expectations in the workforce have evolved substantially over the past couple of decades. Upon taking the Leadership Development Program from the Edwards Executive Education, University of Saskatchewan, I now have a good understanding of what leadership strengths I possess and as importantly, which ones I need to improve to become a more effective leader.

In addition, the Edwards Executive Education did a commendable job in presenting a custom MBTI focused team-building program to the team I lead. Having each team member understand their own and each other’s MB personality type is going to go a long way in building cohesion. "

Why is Leadership development training important? And why should you, as an organization, train and develop your employees to be leaders, regardless of their position and title? 

Leadership is a crucial component to organizational and team success as effective leaders know how to direct an organization's resources to achieve goals and drive results.  Effective leaders provide clarity of purpose, motivation, and collaboration that guides the direction and ultimately achieves goals.  Regardless of an individuals position, understanding leadership competencies can bring together team members to contribute more meaningfully towards your organization's goal.

Every individual can be a leader so why not provide them the tools and resources required to demonstrate these skills? In the Leadership Essentials for Supervisors program, individuals will learn about the growth mindset, how to communicate with impact, and dare to lead. This program can be fully customized to centre around the needs and requirements of your team or organization.
