Mastering the art of leading yourself and others is crucial to becoming a successful 21st Century leader. We introduce you to a range of leadership styles in order to help you better understand your default or natural style. You will then become more familiar with the different choices you have when you lead and be able to improve your ability to influence others. This course includes:
The first module of this course focuses on self-awareness. You will learn how the process of identifying your personal idiosyncrasies and develop a deeper understanding of the characteristics that inform your leadership style. This is a critical step to improve your effectiveness and influence as a leader.
You will explore a range of leadership styles and hear from experts in the areas of authentic and empowering leadership. Through this process you will improve your understanding on how helping people find their purpose delivers superior results compared to forcing subordinates to be loyal followers. We have curated content from Bev James, Bill George, Lars Sudmann, John Kotter and Ken Blanchard, all aimed at challenging your views on what makes a great leader.
You will have an opportunity to share your own leadership story and to explore the important events that define how you lead and to compare this with other leadership frameworks. We also explore how recognising the difference between leading and managing can help you become more effective in your role.
Finally, you will look at how your leadership style can be adapted to suit changing circumstances and how learning to do this will assist you as you lead today.
I really enjoyed the Leading Yourself Module. I liked its format and being able to read the stories others shared was interesting. It was a really practical and inciteful look at leadership its various styles and I’m excited to continue on to the next two courses. Melanie Hamill.
