Leading and developing people

Effective leaders do more than lead. They develop people's capabilities to achieve agreed outcomes and inspire them to produce their best work individually, and as a team. Effective leaders are role models, big thinkers and planners. And they are storytellers, who motivate people to commit to an organisation's vision.

Why earn a credential in leading and developing people?

If an organisation is defined by its leaders, you need to define yourself as one of the best. The Leading and developing people credential will:

  • Formalise the experience you have gained through your work
  • Prove your data-driven marketing skills to employers
  • Help future proof your career by verifying your expertise
  • Help you become a better leader as you reflect on your capability.
Depending on which level you achieve the credential in, it could lead to credit towards a post-graduate qualification at Deakin.
