Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“A leader leads by example not by force.”

Sun Tzu

Getting the most from people and organisations requires strong leadership skills. As products and services become more complex and the role of knowledge workers becomes more critical in the success of an organisation, it is essential to know how to lead and how to motivate.

Great leaders are known for their strong vision, the care they offer for their team, sheer passion for their cause and the tremendous support they provide to help people grow and become better at what they do.

This course covers a variety of topics on leadership and communication skills. It is ideal for those who have had some experience in managing or supervising people and want to improve their skills further. The course follows from Leadership Skills and it is assumed that delegates are already familiar with the concepts discussed in that course.

Since delegates already have some experience in management, this course is designed to address various practical issues that managers encounter every day and provides strategies on handling them. It is packed with exercises, examples and case studies so delegates are constantly pushed to think and re-examine their own attitudes when dealing with people. They learn numerous techniques that will help them improve their interactions and to build trust. A great part of a leader’s role is motivating his team and people around him. This is strongly reflected in various techniques used throughout the course as delegates come across this concept over and over again.

The course provides examples on decision making, delegation skills, managing people and resources, managing brainstorming sessions, crisis management and so on. In addition, delegates get to practice giving short talks to their team or clients in order to improve their public speaking skills.

The course contains various optional content and exercises that can easily be used to extend the course to 1.5 days or even more depending on your requirements.

The Philosophy Behind Advanced Leadership Skills Training Course

 This course is specifically designed around examples and case studies. People in management roles tend to encounter challenging situations. They often look for strategies that work best in a given situation. This is usually the reason that motivates managers to attend a course on leadership skills.

As a result, we have designed the Advanced Leadership Skills to be example and exercise driven. The training content provides ample opportunities to discuss the cases and conversations during the course while also allowing delegates to share their own experiences through interactive exercises. Comprehensive instructions are provided for trainers to direct these discussions with guidelines while encouraging knowledge share between those delegates who already have some experience in dealing with specific issues.

Advanced Leadership Skills Management

Many exercises can be extended well beyond their nominated time so you can get the delegates to work on specific skills or improve on their previous attempts.

Optional exercises can be used to tailor content for specific delegates. For example, suitable exercises are provided for delegates who come from the same organisation so they can freely discuss organisational issues within the group.

An optional extensive end of the course exercise is also provided that addresses different management issues in the context of a single exercise, so it can be quite powerful and memorable.
