About the course

How do the best-performing leaders get to the top? Leaders who’ve mastered the secret of consistently producing high-quality results, regardless of the task at hand. Today’s strongest leaders are those who know how to influence people, give feedback, drive change and produce results even in the most challenging environments. They take personal responsibility with every task and hold themselves accountable and create accountability for those they lead. By developing your relationship awareness you enable yourself to engage in best leadership practices that translate into influencing the development of others, creating high performing teams and a culture of accountability. Relationship awareness is about becoming self-aware and understanding the unique characteristics that make you the leader you are.

In doing so, you position yourself to face new challenges, take on greater responsibilities and ultimately succeed
