Organizational leadership focuses on those skills that allow working adults to become stronger leaders ... through effective and collaborative communication that builds commitment and engagement with others; management of conflict resolution, innovation and change; ethical decision making that weighs benefits and costs for the organization; and an appreciation for human diversity and how to develop effective teams.
