Effective Leadership

Overview

The most common reason employees give for leaving their job is their leader / manager. Failing to inspire or engage with the team results in poor performance and all the issues that generate as a result. There is a whole industry of companies offering to measure the effectiveness of leaders and the engagement of teams. There are also a great number of theories on what makes a great leader. The challenge for the individual is where to go and who to believe - what is the best way forward for them?

We’ve distilled the latest ideas down into a series of practical steps that anyone can take to improve their leadership skills and become more effective at leading their teams. We use DiSC as a self-discovery tool to help you with the process.

This course will help you learn how to lead yourself and your team, focus on the important things and develop strategies for dealing with everyday events. We appreciate the time pressure that everyone works under and so we give insights into effective processes that will yield results quickly, rather than theories that are difficult to put into practice.
