The central purpose of leadership is to enable other people to achieve their mission. Being inspiring and effective starts with a deep understanding of who you are as a leader and how you relate to and influence others.

Overview

This course is designed to enable participants to reflect on their identity, capabilities, and behaviours as leaders. In this two-day transformational workshop you will discover what makes you a leader (identity and mindset), what your core beliefs about leadership are (values), what you are capable of as a leader, and how to translate these into deeper, stronger and more influential relationships with other people. The course is based on extensive and rigorous research in leadership development. Innovative teaching elements such as peer-to-peer coaching and experiential exercises are presented to deepen and enhance participant’s learning, self-reflection and experience. The course aims to deliver outstanding results for individuals and organisations.
