Project Leadership Certificate

Credential Earned: 

Successful project managers are good at encouraging productivity, overseeing progress, and driving performance among workers. But great project leaders are prepared to go a step beyond, demonstrating emotional intelligence, excelling at communication, building productive relationships and leading high-functioning teams.


This certificate program will prepare you to influence your team to behave fundamentally different than a group of workers, and develop your leadership style to work better in specific project situations. You will learn techniques for fostering healthy conflict and learn how to monitor and control project work by developing stronger bonds among team members.


In addition to the certificate's 6 courses, you have the option to join an intensive 5-week PMP study group, which includes live online sessions with other students and your instructor, guided practice PMP exams, and preparation strategies designed to help you prepare for the PMP exam. Accompanying study books required.
