Being an Effective Leader

Essential leadership skills that optimise team performance

Equipping new Leaders with the mindset and skills for success

The step from being a manager to being an effective leader takes more than just acquiring new skills and competencies: it calls for a fundamental adjustment in mindset and a new understanding of how people work.

This three-day program explores key leadership and management skills to empower first-line managers to make the transition into leadership in terms of values, mindset and how they apply their time.

And because learning doesn’t happen in a vacuum, the Being an Effective Leader program has been designed using high-impact learning principles, including the integration of participants’ real-life situations into the learning experience, making it immediately relevant and meaningful.
