Leadership Development - Leading Self

You need to understand yourself as a leader before you can understand or lead others. This program draws on world-wide leadership research and focuses on the practical application of leadership skills and principles.


3 Days



This program offers the ideal opportunity for leaders who want to enhance their understanding of themselves, build their personal leadership brand and capabilities and advance their leadership development journey.

Being the best leader you can be begins with being willing to look in the mirror:

  • What do I offer anyone?
  • Where do I need to improve?
  • How can I leverage my strengths?

You will engage in a range of activities to not only highlight your relative strengths and weaknesses, but also to explore the impact these characteristics have on other people with whom you interact. This reflection will also consider your personal values and how these values influence behaviour and decision making. On the program, you will build an action plan to implement changes on return to your workplace and embed a longer term personal development plan.

Participants will also have access to optional one-on-one coaching sessions with one of the program facilitators
(3 x 1 hour sessions).
