Foundational Leadership Certification



    The Foundational Leadership Certification (FLC) teaches you essential leadership skills like providing feedback and working through difficult interactions. The program is self-directed so you can take it at your own pace, whether that’s over the course of one year or three.

    The core modules cover basic leadership skills:

    • Leading People
    • Difficult Interactions
    • Coaching
    • Feedback Essentials
    • Performance Appraisal
    • Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging
