How to Excel at Leading People
Great leaders are no more born than great doctors are born. While people may have natural tendencies for success, in their personal makeup, they take the training and education that sets them up and sets them apart. Have you received the training needed to be the best leader you can be? Do you feel like a vital member of your management team? Assuming the role of leader does not prepare us for the challenges of a workforce varied in age, experience, expectations or willingness. Also, first-time leaders are often the first to be blamed when objectives are not met, but the last to be given the leadership skills and management tools needed for solving problems, getting the most out of employees, and achieving objectives. Sometimes you need to put yourself forward and educate yourself in this area.
This programme takes the complexity and confusion out of how to be an effective leader. Whether delegates are new to the job or well-established, theyíll take home dozens of fresh ideas, imaginative solutions and best practices they can use the very next day.
