Effective leaders are needed in all fields, particularly in human services, education, health, recreation, business, governments, and the volunteer sector. Many graduates work in human resources or personnel management of various private companies and agencies, where they hire personnel and manage any workplace conflicts which may arise. Others work in high-level management positions such as director, president, VP, and financial officers, where their knowledge of human interactions is necessary for the continuation of that company.
In education, graduates often pair leadership studies with a teaching degree to make them more effective teachers at the primary or secondary school level. They can also use it for administrative positions such as school principle and school counselor. Graduates can also remain in the post-secondary school system and teach conflict resolution, leadership, business, psychology, and education while doing research at the same time.
Other graduates end up working in a community setting such as recreation, public health, policing, or social work. They can also work in various government agencies developing policies, working in public relations, politics, and labor relations. Some become professional independent mediators and work to resolve conflicts. This can be in the workplace such as union contracts, or in personal life such as marriage counseling and divorce settlements.
A degree in leadership can be used for further studies in business, law, social work, political science, religious ministry, nursing, or any field which involves a high degree of interaction with other people.
