This basic-level course is designed to define leadership theories and models that frame current leadership practices. An exploration of various styles of leadership will enable learners to reflect on their own leadership practices and/or create a leadership plan for the application of new skills. SLPs often take on leadership roles or mentor others in their facility or organization. In these roles, SLPs help develop new clinicians, as well as ensure quality patient care. This course provides a basic understanding of leadership – what it means, what skills are needed, and how to be successful in this role.
