This is a programme designed for executives or those aiming at a managerial-level position, wishing to expand their leadership skills. Research has shown that, in fact, leadership ability is partially innate, while to a large degree it can be learned; in other words, there are specific leadership behaviors which if adopted can increase a leader’s results.
In this programme we are discussing the manager's role and functions, how to build a highly performing team, how to gain your subordinate's trust and respect and motivate them towards action, how to empower your people and unleash their potential by applying the coaching principles (G.R.O.W. model).
In addition, we are looking at emotional intelligence as the essential ingredient of successful leadership; finally, we examine the threats a leader may face (counterproductive work behaviors, resistance to change etc) and how he / she can cope with them and get ahead.
A unique, concise and highly beneficial workshop, comprising all the necessary knowledge and skills an executive should possess to be effective in today’s corporate environment!
