Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish a range of objective and who directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and unified. The human resources leader is a vital link between the management teams and the employee workforce. Training and development of Human Resource managers that oversee staff and plan programs to enhance the knowledge and skills of an organization’s employees is a critical function.
Human Resources leadership and management initiatives must aim to upskill and transform professionals into organizational leaders that are equipped to deal with uncertain and disruptive future scenarios. Strategies and programs on leadership and management aim to include specific emphasis on the development of core competencies such as leadership skills, emotional intelligence and self-awareness.
The aim of this course is to teach students how to lead their teams through change by applying a number of leadership approaches, rather than simply performing a random list of management checks. An important theme of the course is that the human resources professional, as leader, is a key link between management teams and the employee workforce. This leadership role brings about its own unique kind of reward and personal satisfaction.
The course is ideal for the human resources manager in charge of multiple teams and groups of employees that work in centralized and decentralized settings. Important skills and knowledge pertaining to internal communication techniques, as well as the importance of socioeconomic responsibility towards communities and external role players, are some of the important elements in the course.
