7 Leadership Training Objectives

Leadership training objectives must be in place in order for management training to be truly effective. The purpose of leadership training is to equip your managers to take responsibility for high value work and to manage people with strong personalities.

These are situations that hold unique challenges that need to be mastered in order for leaders to grow. The seven objectives of leadership training will help your managers and team leaders to develop themselves in the following key areas of performance:

1. Clarity of purpose

This means developing a crystal-clear conception of "Who we are and what we aim to achieve". You want your management team to embody the core values and the goals of your organisation so that they can become role models; people whom the team will want to emulate.

2. Clear communication

The members of the management team need to communicate clearly, both in the spoken and written word, because any poor communication will invite errors and increase the probability of conflicts.

3. Time management

The managers need to manage tasks and time, which means developing the ability to prioritise. It also means being able to delegate the right task to the right person. Failure to prioritise leads to everything becoming "urgent and important" which itself, leads to stress.

Proper prioritisation and delegation lead to less stress and more efficient action.

4. Handling difficult conversations and people

Knowing how to have difficult conversations using the correct amount of assertiveness; neither coming on too strong, nor too weak. Your managers need to know how to communicate a "feedback message" with the right words, the right intention and the right level of emotion, so that the message is well-received, without triggering any negative responses.

5. Self-motivation and self-confidence

The ability to manage one's own emotions: self-control, self-awareness, self-confidence, self-motivation, etc, especially during tough times, and the ability to create and communicate a positive mental attitude.

6. Inspirational leadership

The ability to inspire others. To trigger in the minds of others a continuous flow of positive thoughts, feelings and actions.

Some people call these skills, "Emotional intelligence", or "Mindfulness" and others call it simply, "Inspirational Leadership".

7. Teacher, mentor, coach and role model

The final skill we need to cover is to "pass on your knowledge". This theme casts the manager into the role of a teacher.

Your managers need to pass-on and teach their valuable skills, knowledge and experience to their colleagues who form the next generation. This can be done through a combination of methods that include; presenting, coaching, mentoring, and role modelling.
