Leadership Courses

Submitted by Kim Sayers, sayers.1@osu.edu

Do you want to learn how to:

  • Recognize the role of emotional intelligence in communication?*
  • Deal with and get beyond conflict?
  • Get more comfortable with networking?
  • Fail forward? 
  • Start your leadership journey?
  • Make high-quality decisions?
  • Lead virtually?
  • Radiate confidence?
  • Provide high-impact feedback?

With yesterday’s announcement of the funding available for Staff Professional Development during COVID-19, I thought I’d share with you the variety of options for web-based learning available from BTES. As a certified provider of DDI training and development (DDI is a global communication and leadership consulting firm), we have access to the above topics, and many more, in an online format. With our DDI partnership, we can offer these workshops to OSU employees for $78 each ($98 each for non-OSU participants). 

The full list of courses can be found here. If you would like to see the course descriptions, you can go to:https://www.ddiworld.com/solutions/leadership-courses. Scroll down about a quarter of the way to search; in the Learning Format drop-down menu, you must select “Web-based training.” You can then search by topic or level. When you find the courses you want, do not select the “Get Started” button on the DDI page! Just contact Zac Burkey.56 or Kim Sayers.1, and we will get you registered!

*Communication: Connect through Conversations is the prerequisite for all of the other courses.
