Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between the two, the leader must become a servant and a debtor. That sums up the progress of an artful leader.”

Max DePree

What does it take to become an effective leader?

Is leadership a natural talent or an acquired skill?

Is management the same as leadership?

What are the differences between tactical and strategically planned leadership styles?

If you are looking for an answer to any of the above questions, then you are in the right place. This course offers effective skills and practical solutions for successful leadership. Detailed course materials, exercises and a comprehensive action plan at the end of the course will maximise your learning and allows you to take full advantage of these newly acquired skills once back at work.

This course aims to help you in:

  • Inspiring your team
  • Assessing the needs of stakeholders
  • Spotting the trends quickly and effectively
  • Influencing the key people
  • Increasing team creativity
  • Managing risks
  • Exploiting opportunities

Effective leaders have acquired a set of skills and developed behaviours that set them apart from others. Successful leaders inspire and motivate people. They have the ability to create a vision and transfer it to those around them. They encourage hope, positivity, ambition and compassion. They are good communicators; know about planning and more importantly they can manage people. While all good managers are not leaders, all successful leaders certainly know how to manage people.

leadership skills

Good leaders have strong values, defined goals and clear plans to achieve those goals however they are pragmatic and embrace the change. Their flexible approach allows them to change their strategy and even beliefs to deal with different situation and unexpected developments especially in times of crisis. They are good problem solvers and encourage creativity, confidence and determination in their staff to overcome setbacks and problems.

Although skills are an important part of making a strong leader, it is the behaviour that often marks a successful leader. Great leaders show integrity, enthusiasm, determination, confidence and wisdom. They understand people’s needs and group characteristics. They appreciate hard work and reward it accordingly.

 

Goal Orientated Thinking

Effective leadership without defined goals and objectives is impossible. As a successful leader you have to make it clear to your staff what are the common goal of your organisation.

Strategy

You need a strategy to achieve your goals. A clear and comprehensive strategy will prevent the team getting carried away with unimportant details and help them focus on the main objective.

Centre of the Network

Strong leaders are at the centre of organisations. They are capable of interacting with a full circle of people, from staff to stakeholders. This interaction allows you to identify needs and recognise opportunities.

Influence

Successful leaders understand the art of influence. They know who to influence and how. Learning about different influence techniques to use on a verity of people will not only increase your authority but also increase the chance of success.

Motivation and Questioning Techniques

Motivation increases enthusiasm, positive energy and productivity. By understanding your team’s vision you learn to motivate them effectively. Using the right questioning techniques will also help you in reaching to the bottom of problems and encourage efficient problem solving.

Developing People

As a strong leader you need to understand your people’s perspective, their abilities and vision in order to bring the best out of them. Don’t forget that as a successful leader you are a role model and should live up to it.

Leadership Styles

Some leaders have one leadership style which works in some situations but not in others. Effective leaders however understand the value of pragmatism and develop different styles of leadership suitable for changing environments. You will learn about different styles of leadership and what style to use in different situations and with different people.

Delegation

Effective delegation not only gives a leader more time to deal with more important issues, it also increases team’s confidence in their abilities. Learn the rules of effective delegation.

Creative Thinking

You will learn how to brainstorm, inspire your team to become more creative, encourage contribution and how to capture ideas and information.

Risk and Opportunity Management

As a leader you need to identify risks promptly in order to deal with them effectively and to prevent any future problems. Recognising opportunities on time will allow you to take advantage of situations successfully.

The Philosophy Behind Leadership Skills & Technical Team Leading Training Course

We have been running this course for many years and it has been quite successful. We have implemented numerous changes and modification over the years based on the feedback we have received from our delegates. The training materials you receive are up-to-date based on the feedback we have collected.

The 2-days course is designed to prepare the delegates for a leading role. We usually get two kinds of delegates. Some have an office work, are quite busy and have managers that are quite busy as well and they are sent to a training session on leadership so they can take a leading role and offload some of the work their boss had to do. Others have found themselves in a leading role, and now want to master the art systematically so they can lead better.

Leadership Skills Training

The course is designed to accommodate both types by teaching them about people personalities, bad leadership habits, and correct mentality. It is well understood that being told what to do is not as effective as actually carrying it out. Hence, the course uses extensive exercises to engage the delegates and put them artificially in a similar situation at work. Their performance can be observed by the tutor in this controlled environment and scored and evaluated based on the instructions given. The tutor can easily provide feedback and emphasise learning points and move on to the next topic. This way, the delegates have a higher chance of learning and remembering the concepts thought.

Our experience shows that delegates who went through this course were extremely positive about their experience and also thought the course was more like a coaching session were their needs were specifically addressed and they received a tailored training session. Indeed this is the direct result of the design of the course which is based on Accelerated Learning and Modern Coaching Skills. Comprehensive instructions are given for tutors so they can walk through this course to get similar results.
