Leadership programmes

Ledership programmes

In our work conducting leadership development, we notice a number of things. Firstly, leaders love to learn and we love to work with them on their leadership journey as they do this learning.

We also notice that leaders we work with respond well when we challenge them to reach for things that they haven't yet achieved. This might be to articulate a fresh vision with their team, to renew relationships that are failing, or to set higher expectations of those who fall short of the organisation's values and standards.

There are also critical points in each leader's journey where support is vital. Our leadership training helps leaders at these difficult times as they navigate particular challenges. We provide coaching, encouragement and insights which assists them to move ahead.

Foundations Of Leadership

This programme offers fundamental learning about what it is to be a leader. We recommend this to front line leaders or people taking up a leadership role for the first time. The programme develops skill and knowledge of:

  • What leadership is and how to transition into the role.
  • Communicating clearly and assertively as a leader.
  • Providing feedback and coaching to your followers.
  • Recognising different leadership styles and when each is appropriate
  • Delegating for results
  • Team building and managing team dynamics

This leadership training has a workshop component of 2 or 3 days depending upon the setting and has an integrated on-site coaching visit built in to ensure that application of learning is reinforced.
