What is Leadership Management Skills Training? (5 Day Course)

The purpose of the training is to initiate a process of rapid improvement by means of achieving a shared understanding of the correct leadership and management methods that we need to employ, if we are to achieve our stated goals.

The majority of our leaders and managers and staff are trained as technical specialists: i.e. they are employed predominantly on the strength of their technical competence and background. On the technical level, our leaders and managers are very good, but in their role, as an inspirational leader -manager, there are some definite gaps.

All effective leader-managers need to develop the following six abilities:

1. A sense of clear purpose

The ability to create a clear and distinct goal, and commit to it for long enough to attain it. As opposed to; when difficulties and setbacks appear, dropping the first goal andstarting new, second goal, then later dropping the second goal to start the third.

2. Excellent communication skills; accurate language

The ability to accurately explain your ideas to others, in such a way that they will understand you, agree with you and will act in accordance with your ideas; As opposed to suffering an excessive number of miscommunications, misunderstandings and avoidable upsets.

3. Rational, logical planning skills

The ability to analyse the facts and formulate detailed, written plans of action that will achieve the goal in the most efficient manner possible. As opposed to being constantly uncertain and always feeling that you are “reacting to events; reacting to the current crisis”.

4. Rational conflict

The ability to guide and harmonise the various personalities in the team, so that they are more able to synchronize their actions and be more likely to reinforce and complement each other: As opposed to a disharmonious atmosphere; office character clashes, internal squabbles and people conspiring against each other. In addition; the ability to handle difficult conversations and performance issues.

5. Inspire and motivate yourself (personal management)

The ability to maintain a positive mental state of optimism and realistic selfconfidence, especially during the tough times. As opposed to, losing heart after a defeat or series of setbacks or criticisms.

6. Inspire and motivate other people (leadership qualities)

The ability to inspire the positive emotions of self-belief, desire and self-confidence in all the other members of the team, especially during difficult times. As opposed to; allowing excessive negativity, pessimism or fear to take hold of the team and weaken its spirit.

A leader-manager is one who has these abilities developed to a high degree
