This Masters of Education was designed for people who want to improve their own leadership skills

This degree starts off by analyzing various leadership theories and then assessing your own leadership style. From there, you will explore how to influence the organization and its culture, how to build effective collaborative partnerships and how to resolve and minimize conflict.
It then moves on to teaching how to develop and train other members of the organization in the best practices of leadership. It does this by examining the latest in adult learning theories, effective curriculum and facilitation of professional development and training experiences, critical evaluation of your staff development program and determining the best technology tools for your instructional needs.
This program can and has been used in military, “first responder” and business trainers communities. Anybody who wants to be able to effectively develop their colleague’s leadership abilities can benefit from this program.
