High Impact Leadership Program (4 DAY PACKAGE)
Great leadership is about delivering results today and ensuring that they are sustainable for tomorrow. Successful leaders accomplish this by the direction, inspiring action, aligning resources and developing the capabilities of your team.
Leadership is knowing how to vary the application of these skills within the culture and during any environment change. By improving your effectiveness you will learn how to create and sustain team momentum and lead positively.
This interactive learning program is designed to motivate and energise the attendees putting the ‘wow’ into your business success through inspired leadership. We will introduce the cutting edge tools and techniques and encourage personal accountability for your learning. Our goal is to ensure you reach your full potential as one of the best leaders in Scotland.
Over the four days, these sessions will guide delegates away from ‘macro’ issues such as organisational structures and incentives, to more ‘micro’ topics such as leading your teams and people performance, as well as providing and using feedback to enhance your personal and professional growth. The program develop leadership capabilities and focuses on transforming experienced managers into leaders who will set direction and provide a results-oriented vision for their teams and individual employees.
Over the four days the participants will be guided through four key stages:-
Where are you now – your personal growth as a leader?
What does best practice / team performance look like?
What are the corporate visions and Values and are they aligned to the culture?
What am I going to do to embed the learnings?
Through follow-up contact after the program, it extends beyond your time on the course and provides you with valuable guidance as you implement your learning and personal action plans.
