PDC Launches Redesigned Certificate in Leadership Essentials
The Professional Development Center's refreshed program has no application, requires no recommendations or nominations and does not need to be taken in a specific order.
After an almost three-year hiatus, the 美高梅mgm1888 Tacoma Professional Development Center (PDC) announces the launch of a redesigned and refreshed suite of leadership programming in 2022年秋季. The new program is designed with options for a full certificate in leadership as well as stand-alone courses and workshops. Unlike many leadership programs in the South Sound, the Certificate in Leadership Essentials has no application, requires no recommendations or nominations and does not need to be taken in a specific order.
“As part of the community it is our mission to help people and organizations grow their capacity,Christopher Cellars指出, PDC执行董事. “We also believe that you can be a leader in any role, which makes it important to provide this educational opportunity to the widest possible audience.”
The courses will be taught by experienced practitioners from across Washington, with a particular emphasis on practitioners in the South Sound. Instructors have a broad range of experience including running their own private consulting firms, holding positions in schools and tribal governments, and working with small teams in public agencies as well as executive teams of massive corporations.
“Effective leaders improve morale, 提高参与, 建立联系, inspire confidence and create a positive culture,萨拉林·史密斯指出, program development manager at the PDC. “The ripple effects of positive leadership can be far-reaching and long-lasting.”
Certificate in Leadership Essentials
The centerpiece of the new program is the Certificate in Leadership Essentials. The recommended pathway through the program includes four core courses which are supplemented by another 21 hours of learning through additional PDC offerings. Each core course includes a diversity, equity and inclusion component, reflecting the need to bring an equity lens to every aspect of leadership.
Leadership Workshops and Webinars
The PDC will also be offering a range of workshops and webinars focused on different aspects of leadership. Working professionals will be able to address a single pressing workplace need or pursue a smaller set of courses to focus on a specific situation. These offerings will enhance the skills students learn in other PDC programs, such as Project Management and Lean Six Sigma.
Direct Admit students in the Milgard School of Business, University of Washington Tacoma are guaranteed admission to the business major and qualify for special Scholarships. Benefits include enrollment in a Leadership course, plus guidance from Business School Academic Advisors.
