About the Course
This is a shorter version of our in-depth leadership program designed for emerging leaders who have less need to create system-level impact but who would benefit from developing their personal capability to collaborate with peers, lead small teams and build their person effectiveness. The program provides space and stimulus for leaders to understand how they operate when they are working from their strengths and also to recognise when they’re off balance and less effective. There is a focus on self-understanding and self-compassion to build skills in regulation and to enrich and buffer individual wellbeing. Dealing with difficult emotions and challenging situations is including and the program helps participants give feedback in a way that enlivens. Emerging leaders develop greater clarity about the power of their own choices and responses. They become more attuned to encouraging proactive behaviour in those around them, and able to building collaboration and trust.
This course is contextualizable to your specific organisational environment and needs.
It can also be customised to be delivered through different delivery structures.
Course Delivery Options
Course is offered in both Online and Blended modes.
