The High EQ Leader – Beyond Management to Transformational Leader

Get in Touch

Course Aim

How often have we heard the lament – “we have too many managers and not enough of those who truly lead”? Great organisations, teams and projects are invariably led by managers with exceptional leadership skills. In Daniel Goleman’s book titled “The New Leaders – Transforming the Art of Leadership into the Science of Results”, he says, “No matter what leaders set out to do- whether it’s creating strategy or mobilising teams to action, their success depends on how they do it! Even if they get everything else just right, if leaders fail in this primal task of driving emotions in the right direction, nothing they do will work as well as it could or should”.

This course aims to empower managers with the both the science and art of leadership. You will learn how to align hearts and minds to the attainment of common, inspiring outcomes and in the process, create extraordinary work culture that is empowered to deliver superior results.
