Excellence in Leadership

9-credit Technical Certificate

The dynamic of today’s workplace is much different than it was just a decade or two ago. The more traditional structure, in which managers could rely on hierarchy, rules and policies, have been refined to better accommodate workplace change in an efficient manner. Managers need to keep their employees centered in the midst of change by distributing leadership by developing credibility, information, knowledge and customer data throughout the organization. In this short-term certificate program, hone skills to better communicate with executive and peers during crucial conversations, manage conflict situations, deal with emotional behavior, and maintain and develop the self-esteem of others.

  • This certificate is best suited for those currently working in management and leadership positions.
  • Evening completion options are available for this certificate.

Credit Transfer Opportunities

WCTC has agreements with local high schools and various four-year colleges and universities that enable students to transition more seamlessly from high school to WCTC to four-year colleges. Transcripted credit agreements provide high school students the opportunity to take WCTC courses at their high schools. Agreements with four-year colleges enable WCTC graduates in selected programs to transfer credits, often at junior-level standing. Agreements currently in place for this program are listed below.

There are no credit transfer agreements for this program at this time. For more information, contact your academic advisor.

UW-System Credit Transfer

If you are interested in attending a UW-campus, you should contact a transfer representative at the campus you plan to attend. You may also check credit transfer agreements between WCTC and the UW System to tell you which specific courses and general education classes may be accepted.

Important Cautionary Note:
