About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Each week students will explore leadership topics through knowledge-check quizzes, readings, and responding to a real life leadership scenario with a one page paper. The leadership scenario responses are graded on an understanding of the topic, application of your strengths and personality type and a professionally written response. These one page responses will be graded by 3 peer reviewers against a rubric. Writing a very good one-page paper can be more difficult than writing a much longer piece. This is one of the most important and practical types of writing to master. Being a peer reviewer encourages you to be a critical thinker and enhances your communication skills. Peer reviews teach you how to communicate positive and constructive feedback, a critical leadership skill.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
