Leading People and Teams Specialization

In this Specialization*, developed by the University of Michigan, you will learn essential leadership skills, including how to inspire and motivate individuals, manage talent, influence without authority, and lead teams. You will not only learn from Michigan faculty but you will also learn directly from exceptional leaders including Jeff Brodsky, Global Head of HR at Morgan Stanley. We will share with you our research on how to lead people and teams effectively, and work with you to apply these insights to your own teams and leadership. In every course, you will have an opportunity to apply new leadership skills by working through a series of practical leadership assignments. In addition, the Capstone Project will enable you to work on live leadership challenges faced by senior leaders and receive their feedback on your ideas and solutions.

A Specialization is a group of (4-10) courses including a hands-on Capstone Project that helps you master a certain skill. Once you successfully complete all the required courses including the Capstone, you will earn the Specialization Certificate from Coursera and the University of Michigan, which you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.

This is a beginner level specialization for anyone interested in Leadership. No prior experience is required.
