Course description

Leadership Skills Leadership Skills - A 1-day training course in Manchester

This course is designed to give participants a three-fold perspective on leadership development:

  • Your perspective - understanding and developing the skills and characteristics you have and how you use them. 
  • Your team’s perspective - how team members may perceive you and the effect you have on them and they on you.
  • How your leadership impacts on the organisation as a whole. Discover how to drive the organisational vision

Understanding leadership is finding a working balance between these three potentially conflicting perspectives and becoming flexible in your leadership approach to be able to meet the changing needs, both inside your business and wider in society.  

This course will teach you how to take into account these differing perspectives on leadership when developing practical strategies to build upon your leadership character.
