Taking the leap into management positions can be a daunting challenge, but flourishing as a leader is significantly more complex. Consequently the new DBS Online Diploma in Leadership has been designed to help existing or aspiring managers to transition successfully. The course is taught in recorded weekly scheduled classes, using a cloud based app that works on any device. In addition students will have access to the Moodle learning management system that brings the class and teacher together for activities and access to resources.
The Diploma is an innovative and highly interactive learning experience, dispensing a set of practical tools that can be used immediately. Students will be immersed in the key principles of leadership, motivation, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, teamwork, stakeholder management and more, enabling them to maximise their strengths and achieve their potential.
