Strong leadership across all levels ensures a business is safer and more productive. It is as important to have competent front-line leaders as it is to have competent supporting managers. Staff will no longer need to be told ‘how’ to do their job – they will just need to know ‘what’ the goals are, and our training will do the rest. Individuals and teams will be able to do ‘more with less’ and reduce any over-reliance on senior managers.

Developing Inner Qualities

Our proven and innovative learning encourages delegates to instinctively recognise good leadership and set their own high standards through continuous improvement. It allows delegates to examine how their behaviour influences others and how small changes can have a substantial impact on a team. We utilise facilitated learning to maximise learner participation and we role model the behaviours that our clients want to promote.

Active and Immediate Results

Our extensive experience of successfully delivering leadership development has demonstrated that delegates take active and immediate responsibility for their team’s actions. They show pride in making things happen, doing things better and actively seeking new challenges.

Course Content

Delegates discover how others see them and learn how to develop their own style of leadership to make a stronger and more positive impact in the workplace. Modules covered include:

  • Importance of strong leaders
  • What makes leaders different?
  • Assessing situations
  • Creative problem solving
  • Timely decision-making
  • Communicating effectively
