    Business Leadership – Becoming Management Material

    Original price was: £20.00.Current price is: £9.47. £11.36 Inc VAT

    Business Leadership – Becoming Management Material complete with certificate

    This course is a tool for your leadership development. It is designed to help you create and accomplish your personal best, and to help you lead others to get extraordinary things done. At its core, leadership means setting goals, lighting a path, and persuading others to follow. But the responsibility entails much more. Leaders must get their message out in a way that inspires, make the most of their limited time, and build roads to precious resources. They must negotiate alliances, improve their colleagues, and align the ambitions of the many with the needs of the organisation. What makes for a great leader? Is it something to do with inward characteristics, such as confidence and focus? Is it more about outward presence, including charm and compassion? Or is it about the ability to create a vision and get others to commit to it? The answer is all of the above. By accepting the challenge to lead, you come to realise that the only limits are those you place on yourself.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Define your role as a manager and identify how that role differs from other roles you have had.
    • Understand the management challenge and the new functions of management.
    • Discover how you can prepare for and embrace the forces of change.
    • Identify ways to get you and your workspace organised and get a jump on the next crisis.
    • Identify your leadership profile and explore ways to use this knowledge to improve your success as a manager.
    • Enhance your ability to communicate with others in meetings and through presentations.
    • Create an action plan for managing your career success.

    Original price was: £20.00.Current price is: £9.47. £11.36 Inc VAT

    Facilitation Skills complete with certificate

    It is impossible to be part of an organisation today and not attend meetings. Staff meetings, project meetings, and planning and coordinating meetings all take time. There has been a growing realisation that we have to pay attention to the process elements of meetings if we want them to be effective. With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal, the core competency everybody needs. Managers and supervisors are often asked to facilitate rather than instruct or manage their meetings and training sessions. How can you facilitate, rather than control, group decision-making and team interaction? With no formal training, people may find it difficult to make the transition from instructors or managers to facilitators.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Distinguish facilitation from instruction and training
    • Identify the competencies linked to effective small group facilitation
    • Understand the difference between content and process
