This one-day course will accelerate the growth and development of men and women who aspire to lead.

Have you spent time nurturing these essential leadership characteristics?

Leadership matters. It is the primary force that inspires others to give their very best to achieve ambitious organizational goals.

But leadership isn’t always intuitive. To inspire high performance as a leader, you must nurture these three characteristics:

  • Self Knowledge: This accounts for emotional intelligence and the ability to effectively deploy your unique leadership style.
  • Contextual Knowledge: This includes a sophisticated understanding of your organization’s role in the achievement of corporate strategy, and the performance expectations of key organizational and extra-organizational stakeholders.
  • Ability to Deliver Results: This references the effective use of leadership processes to direct and coordinate resources in the achievement of your organization’s goals.

Become the leader your superiors are expecting you to be.

This one-day course will accelerate the growth and development of men and women who aspire to lead.

Morning sessions will be devoted to exploring the essential characteristics and capabilities of highly effective leaders.

In the afternoon, you’ll assess your own respective leadership style and emotional intelligence levels. Emphasis will also be placed on understanding your stakeholders’ performance expectations and evaluating how to employ basic leadership processes for the purpose of directing and coordinating resources in the achievement of your organizational goals.
