As many of us know, leadership is the number one factor in an organization’s success or failure. According to a Gallup study, only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work. No doubt, leaders greatly influence employee engagement. In fact, research shows that people leave managers, not companies. In the words of Kofi Annan, “the world is experiencing a crisis of leadership, not a crisis of knowledge”.
- Have you ever considered what the concept of leadership means to you?
- Have you ever thought about what motivates you to lead?
- Have you ever thought about what it takes to affect positive change?
If some of these questions have ever crossed your mind, this course will certainly have great insights to offer.
Starting on Thursday, March 31st to Thursday, May 19th, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m ICA Canada will be offering an eight-week Leadership series titled The Courage to Lead. This non-traditional leadership program has an emphasis on personal growth and reflection and will be of interest to anyone seeking to develop themselves as leaders in all walks of life.
ICA Canada continues to do great transformative work with the University Heath Network (UHN) and various communities in Canada and abroad to help develop the leadership capacity of individuals committed to positive social change.
