Lead…Emerge is LSU’s leadership development program for new supervisors, candidates for promotion to a supervisory position and current supervisors desiring professional and personal development. The program focuses on building and enhancing leadership skills, which support the university’s strategic objectives (Flagship Agenda). Using self-awareness as a catalyst for professional improvement, the program incorporates a combination of individual and group experiential exercises to further build participants’ competencies.
The Business Manager and Human Resource Certificate Programs offer LSU employees an opportunity to acquire core competencies to perform their job at the highest level. Employees can choose to pursue the Business Manager Certificate, the HR Contact Certificate or both.
To become certified, employees must complete the core courses in their selected program and select a minimum of four elective courses in specific areas of concentration tailored to their current duties or as part of their own professional development aspirations.
