Course description

Leadership in an Exponentially Changing World

Earn an official certificate of professional achievement from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

A traditional approach to leadership is no longer sufficient in a world that is changing at an exponential rate. Leadership in the 21st century requires continuous learning and adaptation to the evolving landscape, new technologies, and shifting customer preferences.

The Leadership in an Exponentially Changing World online program from the MIT Sloan School of Management provides new approaches for leading teams toward effectively reaching organizational goals by drawing on the 4-CAPS+ Leadership Framework, developed by Faculty Director Deborah Ancona and her colleagues at MIT. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll examine your leadership style and how to leverage others effectively — both inside and outside teams and organizations — to aid in successfully addressing and overcoming organizational challenges. At the end of this online program, you’ll leave with a digital certificate of completion from MIT Sloan and the executive leadership competencies to mobilize individuals toward change.
