    Lesson Excerpts

    • There's never a one-size-fits-all leadership style for businesses. All organizations operate differently and certain styles will be more successful in some environments than others. However, having a thorough understanding of various leadership styles will help you to develop your own approach and become a more effective leader.

    • One of the most important aspects of leadership is that... not every leader is the same. Different leadership styles are appropriate for different people and different circumstances, and the best leaders learn to use a wide variety of styles.

Its a good course for new managers. Since I am not a new manager, it helped me in brushing up on things that I know and for new things that I can take away. The only advise that I have is to provide more details on how to find practical things like motivation points of team members, how can one be a great leader with practical examples. Overall, a good course.

    It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
