What is Leadership?
Leadership is difficult to define, it’s apparent when you see it and it’s painfully obvious when it’s missing.
Essentially, a Leader has the ability to create an inspiring vision of the future, motivate and inspire people to engage with that vision, manage the delivery of the vision and coaches and builds a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision.
A good leader demonstrates emotional intelligence, strong management skills and communication effectiveness but most importantly they are able to demonstrate integrity.
When Is Leadership Training Required?
You may have employees with lots of potentials which you want to instil a sense of confidence and authority to make a real difference in your organisation.
You may be forced to give certain people more responsibility and take on far more of a leadership role than previously.
There may be managers who have to take the next step and go beyond being good or even excellent managers, to become inspirational leaders within the business.
Whatever your reason for pursuing leadership training courses for your business you are making the right decision. According to the Centre of Creative Leadership, 86% of companies with leadership development programs responded rapidly to changing market conditions whereas only 52% of companies with undeveloped or no programs were able to do so.
This emphasizes the importance of implementing leadership training programs in your business whether or not you can already see the need for it.
What is Leadership Training?
Leadership development is an incredibly individual, a person’s different skills and personal strengths will greatly impact what type of leadership style they adopt based on how their peers react to them.
We take special consideration of this fact in each of our leadership and management development courses because we know each team will be different.
However, the requirements for a successful leadership trainee will stay the same:
- Experiential learning: it’s a learning process which relies on observation and assessment
- Self-efficacy: The trainee will have to believe and trust what they’ve learned
- Visioning: Being able to foresee situations ahead
- Attitude: Attitude plays a major role in being a leader.
Our Leadership and Management Development courses inspire new levels of performance by utilising the latest thinking and best practices:
- Heart of leadership
- Leading and developing high performing teams
- Identify talent
- Emotional Intelligence
Once your staff understand and embrace each of these areas they can go on to demonstrate the kind of leadership behaviours that others aspire to.
