Workshop Overview

Effective leadership is more than just management – it builds on managerial skills.  A good leader offers direction to people, gets them to share their vision for the business, and aims to create conditions for them to achieve great results.

This programme of intensive online sessions focusses on exploring and mastering those skills and knowledge that will comfortably take your leadership skills to the next level.

Participants will gain valuable insight into what drives individual behaviour, how to pinpoint the cultural style of your organisation and understand its inherent cultural strengths and weaknesses.  Together, we will explore team dynamics in the context of the culture, look at functional and dysfunctional behaviour and how dysfunctional behaviour can be reshaped.

The course is run across five days, 9.00 am to 1.00 pm each day.  In these sessions, you will learn how easy it is for the leader to unwittingly set people up for failure and how this can be avoided.  We will investigate motivation, reward and identify strategies to get the best from the team. Finally, you will spend time planning action what you want to change when you return to your workplace.
