Overview:

Leadership Fundamentals is a one-day intensive course that introduces new and aspiring leaders to the essential foundations for effective leadership. The programme teaches people, who are relatively new to leadership, what they need to know and be able to do in order to start to make an effective contribution as a leader.

Who should attend:

This course is for people:

  • who may be new to a leadership role and want to understand how to deliver better results more quickly
  • who have the potential to step into leadership roles and want to strengthen their readiness for leadership and their ability to ‘hit the ground running’
  • in informal leadership roles, who want to strengthen their ability to apply more of their skills in the service of their organisation’s objectives.

Learning objectives:

Participants will:

  • understand what it really means to be, think and act like a leader
  • deepen their ability to apply critical behaviours for ‘everyday leadership’
  • appreciate and apply practical requirements for leadership success

  • the leadership identity and the leadership mindset
  • everyday leadership—understanding leadership as a micro-behaviour
  • succeeding as a leader (even when you are not completely sure what you are doing)
  • the art of learning to lead—understanding how to drive your learning, contribution and impact.
