Leadership Training Courses for Managers

Good leadership training courses for managers will contain essential information to help develop six crucial leadership skills:

  • Goal-setting,
  • Clear communication,
  • Time planning (prioritisation),
  • Handling poor performance, (conflict management),
  • Self-motivation, and
  • The ability to inspire others.

1. Leadership training courses contain goal setting

A leader should lead people towards a definite goal. Goal setting is the first step in the process of goal achievement. Therefore, a leadership course should always start with goal setting.

2. Leadership training courses contain information on how to communicate clearly

The goal should be clearly communicated to all those who need to know. Lack of communication within a team, will cause it to fail.

Many managers are not good at communicating their message. Some managers use vague or ambiguous language, which sets the conditions for misunderstandings and avoidable errors.

Leadership training includes training on the accurate use of language, so as to maximise the chances of being always clearly understood.

3. Leadership training courses contain information on time planning, prioritisation and delegation

The original goal should have a plan capable of achieving it. Therefore, leadership training should contain some valuable advice on how to prioritise, organise and delegate the right task, to the right person.

4. Leadership training courses contain information on how to manage conflict and poor performance.

Some managers are over-assertive, causing them to trigger negative emotions in the rest of the team. Other managers are not assertive enough and they fail to handle the issue.

Leadership training helps the manager to find the "middle ground between the two extremes" and they handle conflict in a timely, rational, professional and respectful manner.

5. Leadership training courses contain information on self-motivation.

Leader-managers should motivate others, but in order to do so, they should first motivate themselves.

You cannot give away something you don't have.

Self-motivation should therefore precede the motivation of others.

Leadership training should contain good information on self-motivation, self-discipline, self-confidence and self-awareness.

6. Leadership training courses contain information on how to inspire other people.

Inspiring others is the essence of leadership. Therefore, the course should contain good information on how you might affect the emotions of others in positive ways.

Leaders should spend time learning how to positively affect people emotionally.
