Leading Others, Developing & Managing Yourself

Course Description

Underpinned by positive psychology principles and a contemporary and evidence-based model of work behaviour, the “Leading Self and Leading Others” unit aims to enhance your personal effectiveness and to develop your leadership capabilities.

Effective leadership starts from within. If you cannot manage and develop yourself, you will struggle to lead others. The first part of this unit, Developing and Leading yourself, helps you to develop your self-awareness, and then to use this insight to manage your work life. You will learn how to master fundamental aspects of your life such as managing your time and your home-work interface (mastery), as well as how to embrace uncertainties (agility) and how to create meaningful change for yourself (proactivity).

In Leading Others, you then learn about how to enable others to achieve mastery, agility and proactivity in their work and life. You will learn about the importance of more transactional forms of leadership (giving feedback, setting clear roles) that promote mastery in others, as well as more transformational forms of leadership (vision, support, etc) that promote others’ agility and proactivity.

The 5-day executive programme requires all delegates to complete an in-depth personal styles assessment alongside a 360-degree leadership skills assessment as pre-assignments to gain a real insight into their leadership strengths. The training then combines a mix of interactive lectures, exercises and discussions, to help them build a complete picture of their individual potential and understand how they can become the best leaders they can be.
