This short course is a condensed version of our two-week Executive Leadership in Action (approved by the Institute of Leadership and Management) course. Designed for the executive who wants to develop their personal insight and effectiveness and to grow as a leader, this programme will provide an opportunity to explore your strengths in a trusting, peer-to-peer environment.
Delegates will identify the qualities and values of a successful leader and how to apply these to their own personal development journey. Prior to the course they will identify a real-life challenge to work through during the week and will focus on influence, conflict resolution, taking responsibility and making difficult decisions.
Delegates will focus on influencing strategies and skills and the use of power to identify their own preferred way of making an impact and engaging with people. Delegates will also assess the benefits of coaching practices, how to create a coaching culture in their organisation and how to coach others for improved performance.
This is week one of The Leadership and Governance Toolkit for Boards and Senior Executives.
