Personal Self-Development for Leaders Old approaches of leadership were about holding strength and wielding power.

Today we know that leadership is, by definition, achieved through gaining the support and followship of others by connecting, engaging, inspiring and serving others – and self. Training is available in-person by arrangement.

Leadership as a core management function Managing, supervising and teaching others always involve aspects of leadership, whether by authority, expertise or example.

The behaviours of people in these roles are scrutinised and interpreted, with subordinates and others reacting intuitively to signs of integrity, authenticity and character in ways that heavily influence not only their attitudes towards those people, but towards their workplace and the attitudes they bring to their own work and share with others.


Leadership development There are two sides to success in leadership in the workplace.

The first is outward, witnessed by others and exemplified in Management Essentials Training where the focus is on skills, processes and techniques. The second, and the subject of this training course, is inward, where knowledge and awareness connect with personal values and motivations to enable leaders to become more complete, balanced and motivated.


Leadership as character Power might breed compliance temporarily, but it also breeds disengagement, resentment and rebellion.

The currency of leadership in the workplace has shifted from one of power based purely on hierarchical superiority to one where more informed and sceptical employees and customers demand that leaders display an integrity of character that defines them as worthy of personal respect, trust and fellowship.


Leadership as emotional connection Leadership effectiveness has always been based upon on one simple, emotional and mostly subconscious question – is someone better off if they follow and support their appointed leader?

Who best shares their values and makes them feel emotionally and physically safest? Who gives them hope, support, boundaries and rewards? Who makes them feel good about themselves and their social place? Successful leaders understand that leadership is based not on a title but on strong, intuitive emotional connections.


Leadership as skill A popular myth is that leadership is a natural skill, a trait born of genes, natural talent or social position.

While some people have a temperament that is more “natural” for leadership, the habits that create successful leaders can be developed and refined by almost anyone to the limits of their potential, subject to their own determination to learn, change and take on responsibility for self and others.


Personal self-development for leaders training Designed for those whose roles involve the responsibility of being a manager, supervisor or trainer, this course serves to develop personal leadership awareness and skills.
