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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Participants gain insights into themselves and their own motivations and style while gaining an overview of personality types, emotional intelligence and contemporary leadership practice. Outcomes can be expected to include better self-management, superior performance and enhanced workplace relationships.
