A Program focusing on the managerial leadership role as an integrating activity aiming to satisfy the needs of people at work, create an organizational climate in which people work willingly and effectively, and to assist in the achievement of the goals of the organization.
It is through the process of management that the efforts of an organization are coordinated, directed, controlled and guided towards the achievement of organizational goals. Management and leaders need to strike the right balance between the elements and influences of individuals, of groups, of the organization and the environment.
