Leadership is a capability needed in any role — not just people managers. We see leadership as the capacity to influence others, for the purpose of achieving a required business outcome. The MCAC Virtual Leadership Development Program (vLDP) provides you valuable insight in the role of the leader and how to create the conditions for success for your team. The vLDP will allow you to develop the skills and knowledge required to succeed in your leadership role, building greater self-awareness, adapting your communication approach in different situations, and demonstrate leadership in selecting the strategy to engage your team members. Your learning will be enhanced through stimulating and collaborative discussions with your peers and our expert facilitator, Jennie West-Correia, CPF, CEC – Senior Consultant, Facilitator and Executive Coach Leadership Development.
