Learning to Lead

Moving into a leadership role is one of the biggest steps you will make in your career, and you will need to overcome a number of challenges to make that transition a success. Leaders must be able to navigate a unique set of cultural, social, and economic forces to stay ahead of the competition. They need to be in touch with technological advances, interchanging world views, shifting workplace structures, increased workforce expectations, changing demographics, and expanding skill requirements.

Learning to Lead is a two-day course designed for those who have moved into a leadership role within the last two years, or about to transition into a leadership role. However, it will also be beneficial for experienced leaders who want to refresh their skills and stay in touch with contemporary leadership practices.

The course focuses on developing your personal leadership style and covers key topics, including managing tasks and performance, handling conflict, developing teams, and leadership and communication styles. It will equip you with the critical skills needed to make the transition from an individual contributor to a successful leader.

Using real-life examples, practical techniques, and group activities, you will gain a snapshot of contemporary leadership challenges, and take away a practical toolkit of essential leadership skills. Importantly, you will explore what effective leadership in your organisation looks like and develop an individual action plan to reinforce your learning and achieve success as a leader.
