Leaders are the backbone of an organisation and without effective leaders an organisation is doomed to fail and disappear. To be an effective leader you need to possess more than the relevant body of knowledge and experience. Effective and result-oriented leadership demand that a leader need to be socially intelligent in being able to develop meaningful relationship with his/her staff and having a high sense of empathy and a practical concept of social responsibility. This is important today as without social intelligence leaders will be unable to ride the waves of uncertainty when the organisation that they lead hits a rut. The return on your investment in attending this course is that you will become more socially intelligent which in turn will make you like a magnet of positivity where people will gravitate towards you for inspiration, and see you as a role model to be more productive and effective.
