eCornell Announces New High Performance Leadership Certificate

eCornell has announced the launch of Cornell University Professor Samuel Bacharach’s newest online certificate program, High Performance Leadership.  Bacharach, the McKelvey-Grant Professor of Organizational Behavior at Cornell’s ILR School and director of Cornell ILR’s Institute for Workplace Studies, developed this ten-course certificate program to develop the critical skills leaders need to execute and get things done in organizations.

“This program is for managers and leaders who are already experts in their functional areas,” says Bacharach. “It is for people who know what they want to do but don’t have the proactive leadership skills to do it. In order to operate and succeed in their organizations, high-performance leaders need to be able to be able to mobilize coalitions, maintain momentum, negotiate for results, coach others to achieve their potential, and above all, execute. This program teaches those skills.”

High Potential Leadership continues Bacharach’s work asking “What makes leadership work?” and developing rigorous and relevant courses to develop the skills necessary to lead at the highest levels. This program complements Bacharach’s first eCornell certificate program, Change Leadership, by adding courses in negotiations and coaching.

Bacharach is an active blogger on leadership issues at the Bacharach Blog.
