New Self-Paced Leadership Development Offering at BTC
April 29, 2021
Leadership skills are in high demand more than ever. Blackhawk Technical College is responding to the demand by offering new self-paced leadership development options through its Workforce and Community Development department. Workshops can be taken individually or take them all for a more holistic approach to leadership development. All workshops are offered online and take about a week to complete.
“In line with BTC’s mission, students have the flexibility to finish at their own pace with the convenience and ease of meeting their professional development needs anywhere there is internet access,” said Mark Borowicz, Workforce and Community Development Director at BTC. “Learning is flexible, interesting, and geared to the busy adult learner.”
The WCD team piloted these workshops this summer to rave reviews. One student commented, “I enjoyed being able to work at my own pace. All the videos and activities broke up some of the reading, which kept me interested in the content. We have just undergone a big change at work, and it was interesting to see some of the things we got right and some of which we got wrong. I am sure I will be able to apply what I learned in the workshop to help lead a successful change initiative.”
Create more career value for yourself and your employer by taking one or more online workshops through BTC. Be ready to meet the high demand for good leaders in today’s workplace!
The workshop offerings include employee engagement, communication strategies, ethics, dealing with difficult people, and more. Workshops launch this summer, and registration is now open. Learn more about summer workshop offerings here.
