Whether you see yourself leading a Fortune 500 company, your local community theater, or anything in between, studying the principles and practices of leadership will give you the foundation necessary to be a strong leader. Many of these principles can apply to groups of any size or scope. By examining specific theories on leadership, you'll develop a way to assess situations based on already established frameworks and find ways to prepare for common challenges leaders face. Even if you aren't a leader yet, you'll discover ways that you can step into a leadership role or serve as a leader in your company or community without an official title. After all, no one will tell you to be a leader; you have to take on the challenge for yourself.

Given that we live in a globalized world, anyone who hopes to be a leader must develop an awareness of other cultures. This includes being prepared to work with people who come from cultures other than your own with openness and curiosity, as well as considering ways you might be able to incorporate international perspectives in your own approach to leadership. Ultimately, by the end of this course, you should be able to take all the theories and principles to develop your leadership philosophy that will be your own personal framework for being a strong leader.
