Your Journey to Leadership Excellence and Better Relationships
This comprehensive 12-week program covers a range of vital leadership components:

  • Mindset Mastery: Begin by learning the mindset that will help you get the most out of this program.
  • Relationship Building: We’ll initially share a simple but effective model (known as The Johari Window) to help you develop rapport and stronger connections.
  • Resolving Conflicts: You will have the opportunity to learn Transactional Analysis as a means of resolving dysfunctional relationships.
  • Effective Communication: Through a Myers-Briggs Psychoanalytical self-assessment, you will gain a better understanding of your and others’ communication preferences.
  • Proven Leadership Framework: Embrace a leadership model supported by over three decades of research: The Kouzes & Posner Framework offers 5 Key Leadership Practices that are learnable, actionable and measurable. Feedback is a gift and we will arrange the Leadership Practices Inventory 360 (known as the LPI 360) which will provide you with invaluable observations from your colleagues on your leadership behaviours and relationship-building skills.
  • Emotional Intelligence: According to the Centre for Creative Leadership, lack of emotional intelligence is the primary reason for career derailment among senior executives. In this session, we’ll explore the Five Areas of Emotional Intelligence, especially Empathy and Self-regulation.
  • Leading Others Through Change: Understand the dynamics of maintaining relationships through turbulent times so that you can take people with you when navigating change.
  • Coaching Skills: Develop a coaching toolkit to help you bring out the best in others as well as yourself.
  • Change Your Words to Change Your Working Relationships: We know that small changes can make a big difference. To close the program we’ll be focusing on the words that you might choose to enhance your leadership effectiveness and build better relationships.
