Badge for Coaching for Leaders and Managers

If you’re a new or experienced leader of a nonprofit or small business and want to develop your leadership skills, this six-module microcredential is for you. In the first three modules you will learn how to manage your strengths and leadership style. The last three sessions will focus on best practices for leading organizations including teamwork, communication and coaching.  

At the end of each of these modules, you will create a short reflection piece about what you have learned and how it will apply in your organizational setting. These reflections will be shared in a summary fashion with the group to develop a series of key findings generated by the class.

What are Microcredentials?

Whether you’re a current student or a working professional, microcredentials will help you develop new, relevant and demonstrable skills that can give you an edge in a competitive job market. 

Microcredentials at the University at Albany are a collection of courses and experiences that teach industry-aligned skills and competencies, which are documented by digital badges. 

Being able to clearly articulate your skills means you’ll be better positioned to bridge the gap between college and career, or between your current job and your dream job. You can also stack microcredentials into larger skillsets and credentials.

Our programs are developed using established faculty governance processes and endorsed by UAlbany, so the skills you learn are portable, meaningful and high quality. The programs are offered at the undergraduate or graduate level, or as an opportunity for continuing education. Many are conveniently offered online.
