High Performance People Skills for Leaders

Get the best out of yourself and your people


People skills are crucial to personal and business success. Build the confidence and capabilities to lead people and communicate with them more effectively on this practical five-day programme.


The programme focuses on three key themes: self-knowledge; insight into others; and interpersonal problem-solving. Explore how to address people challenges through a greater understanding of yourself and the unique biases and motives of the people you work with.


Quickly understand your strengths, your weaknesses, and your unique leadership skills – through a powerful combination of faculty-led learning, group dynamics, small group work and one to one coaching. On your return to work, you are able to make a positive impact on your organisation’s culture, manage and empower those you work with, and inspire the best performance from your team.
