Course Outline

Transformational change is about making profound and significant shifts that lead to long-lasting and favorable results, whether in the context of organizations, systems, or individual lives. MIT Professional Education's Transformational Leadership online course is for those who are looking for effective and accelerated change in their organizations in a professional sphere constantly in flux. Transformational leadership goes far beyond personal rewards, it focuses on intrinsic motivations and how leaders engage with others. While transformational leadership focuses on oneself, it furthermore benefits organizations and society as a whole.

Course overview

    Prior to taking the MIT Professional Education's Transformational Leadership course I had few ideas or knowledge on how to lead people or an organization. In my current role as a senior technologist, I am familiar to collaborating with peers and external stakeholders, and providing guidance or leadership on technological matters comes naturally to me. However, leading a team or an organization demands a distinct set of skills, knowledge, and experiences. After completing this course I feel better equipped to assume leadership roles, armed with skills and knowledge that I can readily apply to drive positive changes within my organization and support my team. The office hour sessions with my Learning Facilitator and peers, along with the live webinars featuring Dr. Nino, served to reinforce the course content and address any queries that arose. I am grateful to Renzo, Dr. Nino, and MIT for this invaluable learning experience.
