Leadership Endeavor Badge (6 credits)


The Leadership Endeavor badge is especially for scientists who aspire to leadership roles, or who find themselves in a new leadership role. Courses are interactive, engaging, and highly relevant to students’ needs. Collectively, the courses focus on key aspects of effective leadership, including the role of the self and personality in relationship to others, emotional intelligence, verbal and non-verbal communication, team management, conflict resolution, and decision-making in changing times.
