The Essentials of Leadership programme transforms you from a manager into a leader. You’ll discover your own leadership strengths – and how to use them to get the results you want from the people you work with. Advance your leadership skills by mastering five key pillars – define purpose, leverage your strengths, influence people, empower others and enable change. Define your personal and organisational priorities – with the help of an executive coach* and 360-degree feedback. You’ll develop a coaching mentality and learn to manage conflict effectively and foster authentic, high performing teams.
