Peak Performance Leadership

Peak Performance Leadership: The Leader as Relationship Builder

Effective leaders not only have good self-management skills, but they also are good at building relationships—for example, among team members, co-workers, and organizational units. This tutorial on peak performance leadership reviews the role that emotional intelligence plays in building high performing teams. Effective leaders can also improve team performance by strengthening team members' abilities in managing internal and external relationships. A leader's communication skills are also critical in managing relationships. You'll receive specific suggestions for improving skills in these areas. The tutorial also offers two self-scored questionnaires: one, to assess whether you are a task-oriented or people-oriented type of leader and two, a team skills assessment.

Peak Performance Leadership: Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence or the ability to connect with people is often cited as a key leadership skill. This tutorial examines the four domains of emotional intelligence and how leaders can benefit from improvement in this area. A self-scored questionnaire for assessing one's own level of emotional intelligence is included.

Peak Performance Leadership: Getting Personal - The Individual

A good leader can influence his/her followers' attitudes for good and for bad. This tutorial examines how a leader's character and personal values affect leadership ability. Leaders need to be able to recognize their core values as well as develop and communicate a shared vision. Learn how to identify core values and how leaders can create and use visions to improve organizations.

Peak Performance Leadership: The Whole Brained Leader

Learn how findings from split-brain studies can be used to improve leadership skills. Leaders also benefit from developing a more wholistic perspective and learning how to analyze and use metaphors in facing challenges. A leader will also be able to communicate more effectively by incorporating metaphors through storytelling.

Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Design

European regulations require that ethics specifications be met when designing artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Ignoring these regulations can result in hefty financial fines. In this program, learn what engineers need to know when designing artificial intelligence systems.

Topics include:

  • Responsible Innovation in the Age of AI: Incorporate AI into the innovation process to sustain profits.
  • The Economic Advantage of Ethical Design for Business: Explore the larger context of AI implementation to increase societal wellbeing while building your business.
  • Values by Design in the Algorithmic Era: Identify, analyze, and operationalize moral, societal, and legal values in AI projects to enable inspection and stakeholder participation.
  • The Nature of Nudging: AI systems can nudge human users to influence them with or without their direct consent. When used by permission, nudging can greatly improve users' lives, but covert behavior or aggressive advertising can pose an ethical threat with negative business implications.
  • Ensuring Data Protection and Data Safety: The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation requires every organization that does business there to account for the safe and proper handling of personal data or risk a fine of up to 4% on their gross annual revenue. Explore this massive opportunity to increase ethical considerations in the creation of AI.

Software Engineering Professional Practice

This tutorial is part of a series of eLearning courses designed to help you prepare for the examination to become a Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) or to learn more about specific software engineering topics. Courses in this series address one or more of the fifteen Knowledge Areas that comprise the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge - or SWEBOK, upon which the Certification Exam is based. 

Within each course module, there is a list of textbooks, courses and relevant reference materials to assist you in preparing for the Certification Exam. Professional Practice is concerned with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that software engineers must possess to practice software engineering in a professional, responsible and ethical manner.

The study of professional practices includes the areas of technical communication, group dynamics and psychology, social and professional responsibilities.This course is intended to assess your understanding of professional practices through inline quizzes and feedback.

Specific topics addressed in this course are: professionalism, codes of ethics, group dynamics/psychology, communications skills, and intellectual property, confidentiality and security.
