Leadership Communication

The Leadership Communication specialization emphasizes theory-informed, research-based study of the communication demands on leaders in this fast-paced, complex organizational environment. We explore the competencies needed to be an effective communicator in all three main modalities:  one to one, one to many and various ‘e’ forms of communication. This specialization may be especially appealing for those who have goals for careers in organizational leadership, want to improve their personal leadership communication skills or add to their professional leadership/management credentials.
