About the Course
What makes good leaders and followers? How do you know if you are one? Leadership is more than the ability to manage tasks or direct a team, involving empathy, compassion, determination, objectivity, and more. Similarly, followership is a skill involving emotional intelligence and understanding of the goal.
By the end of this course, students will have gained an understanding of both leadership and followership, and how both skills impact individual and team success. Students will learn to discover their role in the workplace, practice objectivity, and learn skills to advocate for oneself.

“The professors are knowledgeable and great to work with.”
Leadership and Followership is the third course in our Person to Person badge. Though students may take these in any order, we do recommend starting with Emotional Intelligence, then proceeding to the next two courses in the badge: Conflict Resolution, followed by Leadership & Followership. Students may choose to complete a badge in its entirety, or simply elect to take one or two courses from that badge that most address their professional development needs.
This course is 4 weeks long. Each week, you will have two 1-hour sessions of live instruction, and then 1-2 hours of homework. That means a total time commitment of no more than 12-16 hours! This length of time allows students to fully explore the course topic and develop strong foundational skills without having to commit to a lengthy training program.
Plus, you won’t need any fancy equipment to participate. As long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, you can be a Signum Path student. Our program uses GoToWebinar conferencing software for live class sessions. Through the GTW interface, you can ask questions and submit comments to your instructor. The instructor can also allow audio for individual comments or group discussions, depending on the needs of the course. Video sharing is also available for demonstrations, presenting assignments, and other interactive elements.
This course will also use a Google Classroom that you will access through a Signum-provided email address. In that classroom space, you can view and submit assignments, check the course schedule, and discuss ideas with your instructor and fellow participants.
