Effective Leadership


Are you new to a leadership role, ready for promotion or simply looking for inspiration?  This course is designed to help leaders get the results they want easily – to become more effective. 

Some say leaders are born, but the evidence is that it’s a learned skill – and anyone can lead if they choose to. We use DiSC as a self-discovery tool to help you with that learning process.

This practical course will help you learn how to lead effectively and develop strategies for dealing with everyday events. You’ll learn simple processes that are easy to put into practice. 


At the end of the course you will:

  • Understand your own strengths
  • Understand how to lead effectively
  • Understand how to build and motivate your team
  • Learn how to get great results
