Leadership Essentials Course

Develop the behaviours and skills relevant to successfully lead your organisation.

Leadership Essentials 2



The context of leadership has changed. Workforces are dispersed and virtual and digitisation is changing who does what, where and how. Environmental and social challenges are reshaping organisations by the day. Do not get left behind.

Leaders must now span time and space as their teams become increasingly more dispersed. Equally, the day-to-day need for guidance, coaching and managing has never been more important. That is why the Leadership Essentials course offers a model of practical action, to ready you for your own context.

Learners leave armed and equipped with a toolbox of personal and interpersonal skills and processes ready to respond to the rapidly evolving world of work.

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at:

  • Managers who are new in their post and need to understand their role as a leader
  • Relatively experienced first-level managers and leaders who are looking for new answers to the challenges of their role
  • An experienced leader whose context has changed. You need new applications of skills and behaviours that work in this new context
  • You will be ready to equip an effective, practical and usable model of leading and managing
  • You will have a confident understanding of the tools and techniques of communication, interaction and engagement
  • You will learn how to build common purpose, values and commitment
  • You will understand how to use your power, personal presence and influencing skills positively
  • You will develop impressive critical and reflective thinking skills enabled through dialogue and engagement

Effective leadership is crucial in generating high performance and healthy work cultures. On completion of the course, your new leaders will understand the behaviours and skills relevant to their organisation and longer-term development. They will have increased confidence in their leadership ability and as this confidence grows so will their personal potential and the potential of their teams. Your organisational performance and capacity for change will improve as a result
