Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness
Successful organizations thrive because they are well run from a business function and process perspective. Today’s successful businesses also have the flexibility to adapt to a changing customer and competitive environment. Their employees are well-motivated, engaged in the work they are doing, and accepting of the changes necessary for the organization to maintain its cutting edge. They recognize the need for collaboration and teamwork to achieve organization goals.
The Professional Development Center offers a number of programs to help organizations maintain flexibility, adaptability, and their cutting edge:
