leadership development – the inner game
There’s an “inner game” to effective leadership – just as there is with sporting achievement. Self-imposed obstacles which limit performance often need to be overcome. These can include unhelpful thinking styles, lack of self-awareness, hesitation and perhaps even self-doubt.
Our leadership training is practical and challenging, based around:
- executive coaching
- the use of personality profiles and 360s
- increasing self-awareness
- developing competencies
- workshops and simulations
increasing personal effectiveness and influence
Our leadership development programs encourage leaders to increase their personal effectiveness and influence. They learn how to identify barriers and modify behaviours so that they can develop a leadership style which enables them to interact with peers and teams more effectively. This is achieved in a number of ways:
- By comparing actual leadership style with preferred leadership style
- Discovering the implications of the gaps on performance and motivation
- Identifying and practicing the behaviours which lead to superior performance
- Developing a leadership style which is respectful, open and candid
When leadership teams embark on this training collectively, the results can be remarkable.
moving away from traditional stereotypes
Our leadership development programs are about behaviours first and skills second. While technical skills are important, they are not the primary requirement for effective leadership.
Our leadership training explains how to move from traditional leadership stereotypes, enabling those who do not consider themselves natural leaders to rise to the challenge. We want your leaders to instill passion and a strong, shared sense of direction. We want to equip them to align their teams.
achieving sustained change
We aim to bring about sustained changes in leadership behaviour. Drawing on the principles of action and experiential learning, our leadership development programmes are practical and based around real world problems. They provide powerful insights to support the development of soft skills and leadership behaviours.
