Leadership Training and Leadership Skills Development

The debate about the difference between ‘leadership’ and ‘management’ rages on, with no sign of abating.  

Not wishing to be accused of sitting on the fence, here is our contribution to the discussion, one we might add, that we are perfectly happy to be challenged on. Leaders set and communicate the vision of which direction the Organisation is heading in.  Managers execute the plan and ensure their department or team deliver the results.

One to One or Team Approach?

Our leadership training courses in truth, focus on both aspects of this process. We often work with Business Leaders on a one to one basis, not necessarily to help them formulate the strategy, but rather to assist them with communicating the plan and ensure it is delivered as intended.  Leadership styles therefore play an increasingly important role in this, as does communicating messages that in some cases won’t necessarily be welcomed with open arms.

We also work with Leadership teams, often but not exclusively off site, to explore their leadership styles and strategy.  Not to be confused with team building exercises, albeit this is often a by-product, these sessions are always energetic and interactive, sometimes using business simulation exercises which never fail to draw out key learning points.  Whatever your needs, our leadership training will be entirely bespoke to suit your needs.

And what of the leadership team of tomorrow? We love working with forward thinking Organisations who proactively look to engage their most talented managers in leadership training so that they are not only fully engaged in where the Organisation is currently heading, but have the skills and confidence to step up when required.
