A unique blend of leadership development and peer-group interaction
The Leadership Journey is built around four distinct but complimentary modules.
The structure of the program optimises the learning outcomes of each module, as well as contributing to the overall flow, ensuring a logical progression from one module to the next. Through mastery of each of the elements discussed, participants can take an important step towards understanding and achieving their personal goals.
Operating within an ethical, thoughtful and values driven framework
In this session, participants consider the ethical dimensions of their day-to-day communication and identify the important relationship between demonstrable, values-driven leadership and effective working environments. This workshop encourages participants to set their own standards and find ways to measure their own performance.
Understanding and interpreting differing styles
Interpreting different communication styles effectively is fundamental to building lasting interpersonal relationships. This session focuses on the key concepts of personal communication style, how to identify and master your dominant style, how to correctly interpret the style of others and most importantly how to be flexible enough to communicate optimally with differing styles.
Fostering goodwill, commitment and collaboration to aid productivity
Influencing others may be as simple as asking a person to do something, or as complex as building strategic coalitions to achieve long term goals. This session looks at influencing strategies; in particular, how effective leaders draw on different tactics to best suit the person and situation they are in. A range of different strategies are explored.
Networking for Success
Building resilience and overcoming challenges
The final session of the day explores the concept of resilience – particularly during challenging times or in highly pressurised environments. Personal resilience is not only about strength through adversity but the ability to grow and adapt as a result of disruption, to move forward stronger than before. Participants are asked to consider resilience at both a personal and strategic leadership level.
