Leadership skills

This programme is unique, as we work with you and your participants to create the agenda yourselves, by identifying those management competencies which you most need to develop. The programme is then personalised to focus on these competencies.

The programme typically lasts for between 2 and 5 days, depending on the number of leadership competencies and skills to be taught.  Longer programmes can be spread out over a number of weeks. This allows new techniques to be practised between sessions, increasing the relevance of the programme to your day-to-day role.

Course topics can include:

  • What is leadership? What is management?
  • Key leadership models
  • Strategic planning
  • Objective-setting and progress monitoring
  • Managing staff
  • Personal organisation and effectiveness
  • Recruitment and interviewing
  • Managing change
  • Creative thinking and problem-solving
  • Building and empowering effective teams
  • Coaching and counselling
  • Improving business processes
  • Effective communication
  • The "total leader" - balancing demands in all areas of life

Who should attend?

This programme is usually designed for existing leadership teams, or groups of managers newly in a leadership position.
