Practical Leadership Training

Definition: Practical leadership training means teaching a behavioural approach to leadership, as opposed to talking about "leadership styles" or "innate personality types".

Practical leadership training proposes that Leadership is simply the natural consequence of practicing a set of learnable behaviours, which are open to anyone.

Your "leadership potential" is measured via two major factors:

  • Everything you do.
  • Everything you say.

If you learned how to do the right things, and say the right things, then you will get excellent leadership results, irrespective of your "intrinsic personality".

By the same token, if you were to always do and say the wrong things, then you would fail, irrespective of any "innate leadership potential".

Practical leadership training assumes the following; leadership is NOT a special endowment bestowed upon a lucky few. Nor is Leadership innate.

Instead, leadership is a set of well-defined behaviours, together with a set of well-defined speech habits, which have already been identified, codified and organised into a learnable set of leadership patterns.

Anyone who takes the time to learn and then practice these leadership patterns, then they will achieve improved results.

The trick is to know the patterns, memorise them, and them put them to practical use.

The skills of practical leadership

There are many skills, but they all are subsumed under six main headings:

  1. Clear purpose
  2. Clear communication.
  3. Rational planning and decision making.
  4. Rational conflict management.
  5. Self-inspiration.
  6. Inspire others.
