Discover Leadership: 6 Steps to Success!

What's in the course?

1. The Leadership Mindset


This module is about the subtle but powerful mindset changes a new leader needs to make to be able to lead confidently and competently


When you move from technical expertise to leadership, there is a subtle but crucial change in mindset that needs to happen before you can settle into your role as a leader. This module is all about the changes a new leader needs to make to be able to lead confidently and competently


· Change of focus: It’s not about you
· Creating and sharing your vision
· Letting go of specialisation & growing new skills
· Accelerating E.Q.
· Saying yes to persuasion
· Strengths and development areas
· Resilience and stress management


As a leader, we need to understand and celebrate diversity to create staff who contribute in their own special way to create a winning team.


One thing is certain - no two people are alike. Understanding where our "difference" comes from and how each person in our team has something unique to offer, we can broaden our perspective and allow more individualism, invite different opinions and thereby create better engagement with the people in our teams.


·         Diversity of experience
·         Personality types
·         Intrinsic motivation
·         Values and beliefs
·         Culture
·         Adapting to difference


Communication is something every good leader needs to excel at. Being able to communicate effectively is the hallmark of all great leaders.


Communication is verb. It's something we all need to become good at if we want to be effective. To be able to influence, lead, coach or mentor your staff, excellent communication is a prerequisite. Good communication is the foundation of healthy relationships.


·         The biggest error in communication
·         How communication works (and doesn’t)
·         Getting clear
·         Selling new ideas
·         The reason for communication failures and how to overcome


Coaching and mentoring are tools that every influencer or leader must have access to in order to achieve performance and growth in his or her people.


A leader needs many different tools to be able to achieve results. Having all of the right tools - and knowing which to use where - is essential to be able to grow, guide, influence and correct. Coaching allows leaders to help "unlock" their staff's innate potential, while mentoring helps them to learn from someone with more experience.


·         The core of coaching
·         The difference between coaching and mentoring
·         Feedback as continuous improvement
·         Goal setting
·         Empowering and uplifting others


Where the rubber hits the road. Practical techniques and tools for getting the best out of your team.


High performing teams operate on a solid foundation of trust and healthy relationships. There are ways a leader can develop trust through open communication about discrepancies, being able to give and receive feedback eloquently and effectively and to manage performance maturely and with integrity.


·         Building trust
·         Healthy conflict
·         Having tough conversations
·         Letting go of control encouraging ownership
·         Successful meetings
·         Performance management
·         Motivating versus demotivating


Great leaders need to be able to steer their people through times of change.


Let's face it, change is the only constant. There will ALWAYS be change. When leaders understand the inner workings of the human brain in times of change, they will be better equipped to lead the way through the inevitable challenges that come with any change.


·         Understanding why people fear change
·         Handling resistance to change
·         Keeping people motivated
·         Recognition and reward
·         Being open to feedback
·         Leading by example
