Training Course Content

- In the words of management guru Peter Drucker, “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things."
How to practice the art of great leadership and management
On the second day, you'll reflect on all that you’ve learnt the previous day and discover how it can be put into practice in real-time, in the real world with real people who have complex needs, aspirations and priorities.
- How to practise assertiveness without it turning into aggression. Becoming a leader or team manager is a position of great responsibility and can be lonely. Not everyone in your team will agree with you, or like you. Yet, your job is to make tough decisions in a professional manner even if it is not popular.
- How to say “no” without offending or creating conflict. Your time is limited and precious. First, understand what you’re saying “yes” to. This will make it easier to know what to say “no” to in the most constructive possible way.
- The power of language and how to use it effectively as a leader. Clear and consistent internal communication is key to a business running smoothly. You can communicate your vision, your strategy, the progress and also any setbacks in a way that keeps the team pulling in the same direction. The language you use will make all the difference.
- How to elicit employee engagement in the workplace. Happy and engaged employees are significantly more productive than their unhappy counterparts. It makes economic sense to actively create workplace happiness.
- How to empower employees through acknowledgement, autonomy and accountability. You will learn simple ways in which to achieve greater engagement by how you treat people and how you make them feel.
- How to motivate, not manipulate. Jay will have to find out what motivates every individual member of his team because not every one of them will be motivated by the same things. Salary is not a primary motivator. A leader’s job is even tougher. How do you get the best out of a disparate group of talented people who don’t want to be managed?
- How to avoid, identify and treat burn out. Recognising the signs of burn out is always easier after the event and can be very expensive. Being proactive means taking the necessary steps to alleviate stress and deal with those affected by it in a sensitive and non-patronizing way.
- How to create an actionable plan that you can take with you into your workplace and practise what you learnt right away.
