See the Difference With Our Leadership Training Courses
Our leadership training courses are different because we focus on both goal and social skills. It is only by engaging both that you can be equipped to best serve your organisation.
For your convenience and economy, it is possible to enrol in our leadership training courses online. This will prove to be the most effective method of training delivery for most participants because it provides time for reflection and review without locking you into a schedule, as well as not requiring any dedication of time and expense in travelling to a training venue.
Leadership is not something everyone can teach. For a start, it is naturally better if the people providing the coaching are experienced leaders themselves. This is really one of the first things you should check before engaging the services of any training consultancy.
Apart from that, it is necessary to teach the topic in a way that makes it easy for the individual participant to understand and apply the principles to practical situations, and they should be able to do so at any moment (that is to say, it should not be necessary to complete an entire course before something of practical benefit can be extracted from it).
It could be said that successful leadership requires the development of certain traits which should be ingrained as the basis of the personal leadership style. These basic traits which are common to all highly effective leaders are:
- A willingness to lead by example. You should be a perfect example for your subordinates to follow, and in this way you earn their respect. Too many people in leadership roles fail to set a proper example, often saying one thing while doing another (we look at the idea of unwritten rules).
- Development of a sense of moral responsibility. Leaders who cannot differentiate between right and wrong frequently lead their followers into trouble (eg. Enron). Admiral Paul de Caanove has said: “Without a high sense of moral responsibility, you will negate everything you may have achieved by your personal example in other areas.”
- Determination to act within context. Acting within context means interpreting all the interrelated conditions that you work within and acting astutely, considering those interrelated conditions. Have you ever known or heard of someone who achieved great things in one setting, but didn’t perform nearly as well in another setting later? Well, it’s all about context.
As you are on the path to discovering the leader within you, you will notice the steps you are taking. You will also notice the effect that each step you take has on the people and situations around you.
By paying attention to these effects, you will come to understand what particular traits and actions are serving you well and which are not. You will also realise the areas where you need to invest more in self-development in order to achieve your personal best.
Practice Five values the opportunity to help guide you along this path to self-actualisation as a leader. For more information about our services, call (07) 3123 5577.
