Leadership training has been around for thousands of years and there are more books on the subject than on any other management topic. Just take a look in your local bookshop. Organizations strive to produce better leaders because they know that only through effective leadership will their organizations prosper and grow. It is leadership that makes the difference between a successful and a not successful organization.
It is no exaggeration to say that today's economic crisis is a leadership training and testing ground, under the most stressful conditions, which means that every organization must use the current economic situation to test and develop its next generation of leaders.
We have approached leadership training by looking at the competencies that an effective leader demonstrates whatever their level and whatever the circumstances. We cover leadership by firstline managers right the way through to the top team members, which includes the CEO/President/Managing Director.
Our training is linked to the competency assessment instruments that we use to assist organizations determine where their personnel gaps fall.
Throughout our programmes, whatever the level, we emphasize the need for a leader to:
Act as a model for others
Create and then promote a shared vision for the organization.
