Essentials of Leadership

Develop your leadership skills, on this programme, to lead your organisation to higher performance by getting the best from its most important asset: people.

If you ask managers what they find most difficult and challenging in their job, the most common and honest reply is ‘people’. Success increasingly depends on your ability to get people to follow you, not because they have to, but because they want to.

Through 360-degree feedback, you explore your ability to be an effective leader. Transform yourself with practical tools and strategies to meet the six demands of leadership: finding purpose, building teams, leveraging strengths, influencing, empowering others and enabling change.

Return to your office, able to get the best from the people you work with. By energising others, you become a vital agent of change, thrive as a leader and successfully drive the future of your organisation.
