Leading From Within  (Intrapersonal Domain)

CCME 1000

This course facilitates a discussion on the importance of self-leadership. Before managers can be effective leading others,  they will need to first be able to manage themselves.

In this course, you will be asked to complete the Hogan Personality Inventory, which  measures normal personality characteristics necessary for job fit, effective relationships, and career success. Through the assessment process, you will enhance your own self-awareness by determining how best to leverage your strengths and address your areas for growth. Intrapersonal skills are the skills that define how effectively a person can manage themselves and take responsibility for their actions and behaviour.

This course discusses the skills and traits that successful leaders have and how they acquire them.
