LeadershipYOU.com Announces Book and Free Online Course
LeadershipYOU.com has launched a new educational resource website dedicated to empower viewers with effective leadership skills. The website is designed to provide educators and students with multimedia tools for leadership development.
Dr. John Shufeldt, MD, JD, MBA, FACEP, who created the LeadershipYOU project, believes it's important to use the Internet as a tool to help young minds gain the leadership experience they may not find in their own personal networks or communities.
"There's no question there is a need for young people to have leadership skills in order to achieve their goals in this life," says Dr. Shufeldt. "I'm hoping the LeadershipYOU.com website will make a contribution towards that end."
The LeadershipYOU project contains three components:
- The book, LeadershipYOU: Your Future Begins With You
- The free massive open online course (MOOC), LeadershipMOOC
- The blog with worldwide leadership news
Dr. Shufeldt believes the combination of these three components provides educators and students with all the tools they need to gain self-leadership skills.
"Self-leadership is the ability to influence yourself, overcome your inertia, and make changes for your own benefit," says Dr. Shufeldt. Adding, "Remember, your future begins with you."
