The first big step change in any career is moving from working as an individual or part of a team to leading others and having to achieve results through their efforts rather than just your own.

This programme provides the perfect grounding for just such situations by introducing participants to a range of theories, models and disciplines that anyone aiming for leadership in the short term future can begin to put into practice. By helping them to apply these it will enable them to demonstrate they are ready to step up and equip them with a solid foundation to build upon so get them off to a flying start once they move into their first managerial/leadership role.

Who should attend?

The programme would suit anyone likely to take up a first management/leadership role in the next 6 to 12 months or anyone who has ambitions to move into management/leadership sooner rather than later.

How will I benefit?

After the course you will be able to:

Become aware of the key factors involved in making a successful transition from individual to leader/manager
Have considered their own and the organization’s values and how these may drive leadership style
Better understand their own behavioural style, the impact this has on others and how this may affect their path into leadership
Have further developed some essential leadership skills eg assertiveness and effective meeting management 
Have produced a clear personal learning/development plan to help with their leadership aspirations
