Leadership Kickstart Program
If you're interested in developing your leadership skills, aspiring to a leadership or management role within a business or the industry, are new to a leadership role or are more experienced and would like to refresh and update your skills and knowledge then this 2-day program is for you!
About the Program
Thursday 7 & 28 June 2018
Leadership and the ability to get the best out of yourself and others is a critical skill in today's workplace for optimal performance, efficiency and creating a great environment for your people.
This 2-day program has the philosophy that leadership is an activity, not a position - we believe that everyone can be a leader, no matter what role they occupy. Imagine if all of your staff were supported and empowered to lead? How would things be different? What could be achieved?
This workshop has been designed for participants to learn a range of leadership skills and techniques to equip them to better lead and manage at a personal, team, organisational and industry level. We want you to develop further confidence in your own unique leadership style. The workshop will be very practical and interactive and we'll explore and understand what it means to lead and practice leadership. We also want to enable you to build a supportive and accountable culture and network to help and guide each other.
The course has been designed to ensure there is a break between days 1 and 2. This will give you the opportunity for reflection and to practice what you have learnt back in your workplace and also report back to the group about what you learnt.
What you will Learn
This 2-day interactive and practical workshop will cover:
Understand your strengths and values and how to perform at your best
Learn the skills to build an effective team and build a culture of team accountability
Feedback techniques for courageous conversations
