Leadership Skills Course

Course description

Strong leadership is important, whether leading a direct team or project team, and especially when leading people through change. This programme will enhance your leadership skills and help you contribute to your business in a more strategic way.

We look at the differences between managing and leading, covering the theoretical principles of leadership, but also working with live examples. In addition to a solid foundation of knowledge, we’ll help you build a working action plan that you can implement within your own department or organisation.

Is it right for me?

If you lead a team or will be leading a team soon, and you want to enhance your existing management skills through effective leadership training, this programme will enable you to achieve that.

What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify the differences between managers and leaders
  • Draw up a checklist of leadership qualities
  • Identify whether your time is spent effectively in different levels of leadership
  • Utilise emotional intelligence to improve relations
  • Improve the engagement levels of your team
  • Improve your collaborative problem solving
  • Lead your team effectively through change
  • Understand your team’s core values
  • Design a new vision for your team

I found everything on the course to be helpful so don't think it could be improved further.
