The programme will concentrate on the skills required to lead, motivate, communicate, problem solve and manage the multiple tasks demanded by leaders and managers in today’s global organisations. We will explore tactics that will enable us to be better organised by delegating more effectively and using delegation as a motivator.  Participants will return to their organisations with a developing Action Plan to implement their learning from the programme into their daily routine at work.

This programme focuses on exploring the subtle shifts in Management thinking to go from a ‘Transactional Management” style towards a more “Transformational Leadership” approach.  Participants will learn the 4 essential competencies required of Transformational Leaders. We will explore and tap into the many tips, techniques and strategies used to ensure that peak performance is achieved and maintained. We define the 4 critical competencies as follows:

  1. Personal Organisation & Discipline: To deliver key tasks and principal accountabilities through clearly defined and monitored actions of others that report to you
  2. Empowering Culture: To create the environment that encourages staff members to have the ‘will’ to work and produce excellent results
  3. Effective Problem Solving: To demonstrate excellent problem solving and analytical skills, whilst being able to maintain a clear perspective of the issues being faced.
  4. Leadership Development: To possess the tools, techniques, methods and capabilities to translate the vision to reality.
