Leadership and Organizational Development
Effective leadership plays a significant role in the success of an organization - at every level. Executive leaders require the skills necessary to develop an organization's strategy and then cultivate commitment to that strategy. Managers and supervisors require the skills necessary to develop the talent of their people. Individual employees require the skills necessary to inspire others around them. Effective leadership skills make the difference between leveraging strengths and settling for mediocrity.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employees with a Master's degree earn $200-$300 more per week and have a lower turnover rate than those with a Bachelor's degree. Obtaining a Master's in Leadership and Organizational Development can be an important step in both advancing professional development and enhancing career satisfaction.
