Public Sector Leadership Certificate

Credential Earned: 

There are a multitude of strategies, books, and resources that are meant to help you improve your leadership skills. But if you work in the public sector, do these strategies apply to you? What is different about leading in a public organization?

In this certificate program, Seth Harris, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Labor, will help you explore these questions. You will assess your own leadership skills as well as examine your own organization to determine its unique characteristics. You will also examine your employees and teams to better understand what motivates them to work in the public sector.

With a better understanding of both your organization and your people, you’ll have the opportunity to use several leadership models and goal-setting approaches that can help you determine which leadership strategies and behaviors will be most effective in your organization.
