Because we are all tired of using fads which do not improve and sustain results, these courses are based on a proven model used in health care and public education that improved outcomes beyond expectations over time. These courses provide a “How-to-train-the-trainer” approach while allowing participants to experience portions of the actual program. Course design would assist participants to address improving staff morale, increasing trust and respect, building staff up, utilizing staff development dollars more effectively, encouraging leadership behaviors, developing core competencies for all staff , improving performance measures, promoting service before self, and much more. The courses promote the notion that leadership development is an ongoing process…a life long journey.

 

Elective Courses (2)     Offered at various times throughout the year
Certain required and elective credits may be applied Viterbo’s graduate programs in business, servant leadership, nursing, and education

Students who have already taken two or more of the above listed courses may earn the Certificate by taking only Interpersonal and Organizational Excellence I & II. 

Transforming an organization is a challenge for those responsible for leading that organization.  Changing the culture is known to take three to five years to accomplish under the best of circumstances.  Assisting leaders to begin this culture change can be facilitated through learning new knowledge and developing practical skills that will facilitate transformation within these organizations.  This is the intent of seeking approval to provide the courses, Interpersonal and Organizational Excellence I and II.
