About Leading for Engagement: Principles of Transformational Leadership

Regardless of whether you are a mid- or senior-level manager, or a leader in the midst of major or more subtle organizational change, the University of Georgia's Executive Education course, Leading for Engagement: Principles of Transformational Leadership, is a must-attend learning opportunity.

Participants will learn:

  • What it means to be a transformational leader
  • The “building blocks” of employee engagement

  • Becoming more transformational in your leadership style
  • Transforming a disengaged workforce to drive business performance
