Short Leadership Courses

Short Leadership Courses

Short leadership course

You may be on-line searching for a good short leadership course.
You don't need an extended course, since you are already in post and busy doing the job.
And you don't really want a long, extended, drawn-out course, which would require you do homework in the evenings and write essays.

You are looking for a leadership course that is brief and practical.

You want a short leadership course that will help you to sort out some issues that you currently have, relating to the daily problems you face, when trying to get the best performance from the team.

There is Good news.

The good news is: You are not alone!

The problems that you face are almost certainly shared by other people, working in the role of team leader, in other organisations across the country. These other organisations do not necessarily operate in the same sector of the economy as you.

The problems you face, as a team leader, are universal leadership problems. It almost does not matter what sector of the economy the leader is working in, because all leaders share a single common theme.

The common theme is "People"

All leaders lead and manage human beings. They lead and manage people who have to get a certain task done, to a certain standard, within a specified time.
This common theme that is shared by all leaders means that they share the same common problems.
And their common problems have the same solutions.

The principles of effective leadership are universal principles.

They are true for every leader, by definition. But the practical applications of leadership principles are unique to you and your particular context.

You have a three part challenge

  1. You need to learn the Principles of leadership.
  2. You need to figure out how those principles of leadership can be applied practically by you in your own context.
  3. You need to apply those principles, when you return to the work place, so that the learning you do on the course, translates into tangible results.

What are the common questions that are shared by most leaders?

Here is a list of the common questions for which the leaders who attend our short leadership course are seeking answers.

Read the following list of questions and ask yourself if any of them resonate with you.

  1. How can I get the best performance from the team, especially when some people in the team are awkward characters?
  2. How can I stop myself and others, being so reactive to the latest crisis and, instead, become more proactive and forward planning?
  3. How can I improve my communication skills, so that people don't misinterpret what I mean?
  4. How can I improve my confidence, so that people in the team who are older and longer in service than I am, take me seriously as their "boss".
  5. How can I better prioritise my tasks?
  6. How can I get my team to better prioritise their tasks?
  7. How can I delegate more effectively?
  8. How can I avoid unnecessary conflict?
  9. When conflict situations do occur, with team members, how can I best deal with it?
  10. How can I motivate people to give their best, when many of them are feeling bad about the current situation?
  11. How can I create a productive atmosphere in the team?
  12. How can I better manage my own feelings? I sometimes get into a bad state and I don't want that to affect my work or my home life.
  13. How can I achieve the goals that we need to achieve, within the tight time limits that are given to us?
  14. Some people get really difficult if you try to critique their work or performance, in any way. So how can I get people to take constructive criticism in a positive way?
  15. How can I help the team to handle the changes that are going to be made in the next few months, some of which will be difficult for the team to accept.
  16. How can I become a better leader?

Go through these questions and mark out how many of them are of interest to you.

If you have more than 10 that are of interest to you, then you would almost certainly benefit from our excellent short, two day, leadership course.
