This course is aimed at directors and anyone who wants to create a real impact through their leadership and leadership style. We will explore who we are, as people and leaders, how we may be perceived, and find ways to work with our wider teams to identify that shared vision. You will learn the importance of empowerment and delegation, as well as governance and goal setting.
How we handle the complexities of human relationships really is key to determining the impact of our leadership. Effective teams harness the skills, talents, and personal attributes of each person. They also create and maintain a positive culture, structure, and processes.
Effective teams are led by Impactful Leaders.
We live in a world where facts are ‘free’. There are over 100,000 leadership books available to buy on Amazon, so we will not be focussing on the theory, but we will be interactively exploring our own and collective leadership experiences, the comfort zones, and the areas where we wish to improve. We will use some theories and well-known frameworks to supplement our development during the course to give us something to refer back to as we continue our leadership journey.
