Leadership Essentials: Leading Self, Others and Teams

Get in Touch

Course Aim

Leadership is not a position but a mindset, skillset and set of strategies that helps staff at all levels of an organisation be more effective in working with and through their most valuable asset – their people.

This interactive, one-day program will give you a good understanding of what leadership is and why it matters, and an appreciation of your leadership style and how to develop this competence so that you optimise your personal level of effectiveness and fulfilment in your role.

The course begins with a conversation around the difference between leading and managing and the traits that makes one a leader others would willingly follow. It then proceeds to a discussion of self-leadership, an appreciation of your emotional intelligence and its impact on your leadership potential, and how to develop your emotional competencies. What follows then are discussions around how to lead others, how to lead your teams and develop a culture that brings out the best in your people. Each is a vital skillset that and will help you excel within your current team environment, no matter what your current role is.

This course is for you if you are an emerging leader, have leadership aspirations, or have recently moved into a managerial or supervisory role.

The aim of this course is to arm you with a broad understanding of what leadership is, why it matters and how to develop this valuable competency so that you can realise even more of your highest potential, contribute more effectively in your role and be able to help guide your organisation to higher performance.
