Leadership & Career Management

Many Business Administration – Operations Management graduates will, over the course of their careers, move into leadership roles in business enterprises. This course introduces participants to the role of a leader in a business, whether that is as a formal front-line supervisor or manager, or as an informal leader of a work team. Through class discussions, case studies, and independent reading, the participant will explore and develop his/her own leadership philosophy. Strategies for managing one’s own career path as a business leader will be explored, including the role of mentors, continuing education, professional networking, and professional accreditations. Participants will explore how a leader’s interactions with front-line employees have a direct impact on organizational effectiveness. Legislation that affects a frontline leader’s decision-making will be introduced, including key aspects of employment standards, health and safety, and human rights. The impact of unions on a business leader’s role will be explored. This course is offered through OntarioLearn by the host college, Durham college.
