ECO Canada and Royal Roads University: Helping You Develop Leadership Skills Tweet Post by: Fiona Wren, EPt No matter what industry, good leaders share essential qualities. They understand project scope, and how it affects their team and budget. They know how to communicate well, both verbally and in written form. They can formulate strategies (or translate someone else’s into achievable tasks). They know how to play to their team members’ strengths, when to delegate, and when to step in and take the reins. On top of it all, there’s the industry knowledge they need to possess to steer a project to success. The good news is, you can develop those skills no matter where you are in your career. ECO Canada and Royal Roads University have partnered to create the Certificate in Management Skills for Environmental and Sustainability Professionals, a set of courses designed to foster leadership skills for professionals in the environmental sector. The online, self-guided courses help you develop the fundamental skills you need to become an effective manager in the environmental industry. You’ll hear from industry experts about ways to develop problem-solving and risk-assessment skills, how to build strong work relationships, and how to effectively implement successful initiatives. If you’ve already taken some of ECO Canada’s online courses required for the certificate, never fear: you’ll get credit for those and can continue with the program without repeating. Learn more about the program As always, we’re excited to support our EPs and EPts as they advance their careers. This pilot project is just one more way we can help you develop the skills you need to take advantage of the exciting opportunities in the environmental sector. Check it out and let us know what you think. Are there other programs you’d like to see us develop? Comments No comments yet The comments are closed.
