As part of this executive level training each delegate completes a leadership audit. This audit has been specially designed to help each delegate analyse how they currently perform as a leader and the effect (both positive and negative) of their leadership style on their team’s growth and performance. Armed with this important information, the 7 stages of business growth and the leader's role at each stage is covered and the difference between managing and leading clearly identified.
Fundamentally, unless people are following the leader’s vision and objectives leadership is not happening. Just how to get people to do this is a challenge every leader has faced. The keys to getting people to follow willingly are covered in detail, so ensuring that each delegate can use the skills taught and so provide better leadership to their team when back at work.
Leaders succeed because their teams can achieve more. Critical to this success is the ability to develop the potential within the team and the leader has clear responsibility for the development of this potential. Some managers rely on others to develop the potential of their people, but research has revealed that it is the ability to coach staff to greater personal achievement that is the true hallmark of a good leader. Despite this, coaching is perhaps one of the most overlooked of all the leadership skills taught. Not on this leadership course. Our experience shows that many senior managers find this skill hard to master, so our expert tutors will guide you through the how’s of coaching in a very practical, hands-on manner. Many executives have reported how valuable this part of our course in leadership is and how it has helped them raise the performance in their teams.
In summary, this is a great investment of valuable executive time because in three days this programme will change your life. It will challenge the way you currently manage and help you perfect your leadership skills, however experienced you are. By applying the techniques taught you will be well on the way to becoming a great leader for your organisation.
