Social Media for Leaders: Find Your Voice

Self-Paced eLearning

Learn How to Lead on Social Media

Being actively engaged on social media is fast becoming a required skill for social sector leaders. This means establishing your own personal presence on social media to advance your organization’s mission and goals.

If this is unfamiliar territory for you, this course will help prepare and encourage you to add social engagement skills to your executive toolkit at your own pace from your computer or mobile device. The course is broken up into “micro-units,” each designed to deliver a short burst of learning in five to ten minute spurts.

With optional exercises throughout, you’ll have many opportunities to flex your social muscles and develop your strategy for effective engagement. We will also introduce you to many of your peers, leaders who have successfully built their personal brand on social media to further serve their missions.

This course was created with content from subject matter expert Beth Kanter, Master Trainer, Speaker, Author, and Blogger.
