Please Note:

The Art and Practice of Leadership Development Certificate Program and all related courses have been suspended indefinitely. 
We are no longer accepting new applicants and will be contacting current participants with options for completing their certificates.

It is our intention to have a new leadership certificate program in place in 2020.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause.


Skill-building for leaders at all levels

To be successful in the today’s complex and competitive environment, organizations must nurture and support leadership at all levels. This is particularly important now: research shows that Canada, and Atlantic Canada in particular, is facing an impending leadership gap. Baby boomers are retiring, and a less populous generation is taking their place.

Our programs address this situation, offering valuable practical learning for the leaders of today and up-and-coming leaders of tomorrow. Whether you work in the private, public or non-profit sector, now is the time to master essential leadership strategies and high-level skills. 

Master skills through our master classes

Our leadership classes are offered in an interactive workshop setting, designed to give you tools you can apply immediately in your professional life. You’ll learn to:
•    Develop flexible negotiating styles
•    Resolve conflict effectively—and know when to walk away
•    Deliver memorable, powerful presentations
•    Use the latest techniques and methodologies
