Tidal Leadership™

The Tidal Leadership™ Difference

Award-winning and consistently high-quality, Tidal Leadership™ will elevate your personal and professional development.

All of us have admired someone with amazing, seemingly innate leadership abilities. Why do people follow that person? Why are their ideas accepted and influential? Chances are, they are not a natural-born leader—they are purposefully practicing Tidal Leadership™ principles.

“The Tidal Leadership course was one of the most important activities I have done with my life.  I learned so much about my leadership style and innate personality that have really helped me work as a team under challenging circumstances and gain buy-in from farmers who may have had negative experience with extension in the past.” -Sarah Ficken, Cornell University Cooperative Extension

Tidal Leadership™ asserts that leadership does not hinge on a title, job description, or position. Instead, it is an intentional, values-based choice. While other management training programs impart generic leadership techniques, the Tidal Leadership™ Certificate program helps you discover, then build upon, your own unique leadership style, empowering you to become an authentically effective leader.

Designed for educators, non-profit and corporate managers, graduate students, entry-level professionals, and anyone interested in expanding their leadership ability, the Tidal Leadership™ Certificate online program is an essential leadership training component for anyone wishing to advance their career.
