Description: This course examines the skills and techniques essential to effective leadership in the cultural and heritage sector. Concepts and applications of human resource development in the public and not-for-profit sectors, team building, negotiations, communications and goal setting, are analyzed, discussed, and practiced. The sector is conspicuous by its reliance on volunteers and volunteerism and this reality requires particular human resource finesse. This course provides a superlative platform for developing the relationship of learner/sector supervisor Mentorship (see CHSM204-C&H Industry Field Placement) to be subsequently co-ordinated.
