E-Learning Event

Critical Thinking Skills for Today's Leaders

*A personal laptop is required for this course

In this competitive, global economy business leaders expect you to go beyond the technical aspects of your job and think like a businessperson.

This course covers the essential skills, behaviors and actions that support the understanding and development of business acumen–helping you learn to see "the big picture," understand finance concepts, recognize the important relationship between compensation plans and the bottom line, and make wiser decisions.

  • Learn what it takes to apply key business acumen skills and behaviors.
  • Understand, evaluate, and articulate the relationship between compensation and business outcomes.
  • Grasp essential financial concepts.
