This workshop will help anyone that leads a team or is involved in a leadership role. It will also be useful for those about to embark on a position of leadership or with a need to develop their leadership skills. The content is a perfect partner to our Great Leadership programme although both can be attended as standalone workshops.
At the end of this leadership skills development programme, you will be able to:

Explain & understand the qualities of an effective leader & benchmark yourself against those qualities and develop actions to improve
Know the value of sharing the business vision with the team and be able to develop team goals based on it
Motivate their staff by understanding their drivers and developing actions to support them
Deal with difficult staff members and challenge staff in a meaningful and effective way

The following topics will be covered in this workshop:

Qualities of an Effective Leader – Identifying the key characteristics of effective leaders, rating themselves against them and establishing key actions to develop the skills.
That Vision Thing – Making the business vision ‘live’ for the team by answering key questions.
Developing Your Team Goals – Reviewing an action plan that develops clear goals for their team based on the business vision.
Motivation – Determining the ‘Why’ for their staff and developing an understanding of emotions in a business context.
What Motivates? – Looking at specific motivators for individuals and understanding that everyone is motivated by different things.
