Course overview

Leadership is about resilience, courage and attitude. It is about inspiring and empowering others to perform well and achieve objectives.  It is about inculcating a culture and mindset which thinks proactively and takes responsibility.

We help you look at life from differing perspectives and as such learn how to deal with the particular challenges you face in exercising leadership due to conflicting pressures from those they manage and those in more senior positions.

We explore the internal issues impacting the creation of a cohesive and empowering culture within your organisation drawing on theories as well as leadership practices. We also introduce you to and help you address the very many external influences impacting you and your organisation.
