About this Leadership and Management Course

Training to develop your leadership styles and management skills: Set and achieve your goals: Develop effective communication skills, proper delegation; improve team productivity; create more motivation and develop an Inspirational leadership technique. ILM CPD endorsed.

The aim of this professional training course is to provide practical methods to people who find themselves in leadership and management roles, but who have not yet had sufficient training on how to be an effective leader manager.

Many managers and team leaders were originally employed for their technical skills and experience, and NOT for their innate leadership skills.

As a result of this lack of management training, some team leaders make mistakes in the way they relate to others, and these mistakes may create problems within the team.

Therefore, in addition to possessing technical excellence, your team leaders /managers need to develop excellence in the following leadership and management skills:

  1. self-confidence, self-motivation
  2. motivating and inspiring others
  3. communication skills (speaking, writing, listening skills)
  4. handling conflict and performance management skills
  5. time management / planning and preparation
  6. decision making skills
  7. prioritisation and delegation skills
  8. problem solving skills

This informative leadership development training, will provide you with practical solutions to common management problems. (i.e. you will learn exactly what to say, and what NOT to say) in order to get the best performance from yourself and others.

The course is full of real-life examples. You will learn real-world techniques that will give you a “frame of reference” to develop your personal leadership style.

This leadership and management course will help you to develop a productive, professional approach to people management. There will be less chance of disunity; and more chance of creating a more harmonious and productive team.

I found this course useful in summarising key elements of leadership and management qualities, together with using real life situations to demonstrate how to implement those elements. The structure formulae to set goals, deal with problems, create success were also beneficial. The trainer was clear, friendly, succinct and informative.

Leadership and Management Course Content

Leadership and Management Training - Day One - AM

Definition: What is leadership training?

Leadership training is about developing a set of specific attitudes, behaviours and skills which, when applied, allow you to perform on a much higher level as a leader manager.

The Six Primary Virtues

How do you get the best from yourself and others?

To get the best performance from yourself and others, we all need to develop these six leadership abilities:

  1. Set and achieve specific goals
  2. Communicate with clarity, confidence and persuasiveness
  3. Properly plan, prioritise and delegate your work
  4. Manage difficult conversations and conflict situations
  5. Motivate and inspire yourself, so that you always feel strong and confident
  6. Motivate and inspire other people and create a productive work-atmosphere

Develop your leadership management style

The most important thing is to have a clear vision for the future, and a clear goal focus.

If we agree that success means, “the achievement of your goals”, then goal focus is the most important quality of the successful leader manager.

How to set goals, using the eight-part SMART goal-setting formula

Most people know the SMART target model, but most don’t use it because it is too abstract.

We need to make SMART more useable. Eight-part SMART makes goal-setting a learnable set of eight questions.

What is your SMART goal? Specific. Measure. Achievable. Realistic. Time Deadline

Exercise: Develop your skills by doing a real life, practical, goal setting example.

Asking the right questions:

Ask questions that relate to your goals and how you can achieve them. How to use the eight-part SMART questions as a delegation tool.

Leadership Styles: Decide how you want to be perceived

Every day, you leave impressions in the minds of others. What impression do you want to leave in their mind? How do you want others in your organisation to perceive you? What qualities do you want to be known for? Do you want to be motivating and inspiring and have a great leadership style?

Exercise: Develop your skills by doing a practical example of “Impression management”.

The proper use of humour

Humour is a double-edged sword. Humour can work both for you and against you.

How can humour work to add value to yourself and the rest of the team?
Have you seen the misuse of humour cause problems (particularly in a team leadership situation)?
What is the correct use of humour?
What is the misuse of humour?

Exercise: Develop your leadership skills by doing practical examples.

How to communicate with greater clarity

Leader-managers must NOT give any ambiguous or vague instructions. They should have a clear, rational leadership style.

Leader-managers must know how to communicate their message with clarity and accuracy. There must be no misunderstanding of the meaning of the message.

How to create definitions of all your key terms, using the C.G.4.D method.

Exercise: Develop your communication skills by doing practical examples.

Affirmative or negative language

  • Affirmative language is talking about what you CAN and WILL do
  • Negative language is talking about what you CANNOT or WON'T do
  • Non-leaders spend too much time talking about what they won’t do
  • Leaders spend most their time talking about what they will do
  • Exercise: Develop your skills in transforming the conversation from the negative to the affirmative
Learn the Language of a Leader.

Positive v negative suggestions

We influence each other by the way we speak. Unfortunately, we sometimes accidently give negative suggestions in the form of negative commands. For example: DON’T PANIC! is a suggestion to PANIC.

Stop giving negative suggestions and be much more conscious of the way you word your message, suggesting only positive images to the mind. Talk about what you want, not what you don’t want.

Ensure that the last thing you say to them is WHAT YOU DO WANT.
Exercise: Develop your leadership communication skills by practical examples.

Leadership and Management Training - Day One - PM

Conflict Management Training

I understand blank fact is wrong box. -> Wrong box -> Right box -> Commit? -> Excuse /Reason -> Negotiate

Because other people don't share your views, occasional conflict is inevitable.
Therefore, how you handle conflict is important.

How to handle difficult conversations

  • Use reason and logic to resolve conflict; not anger, tears or upset
  • How to nip conflict “in the bud”, before it escalates into something more serious
  • Know when to compromise and when to “hold the line” and not compromise

Proper conflict management methods

  1. Always protect their "self-concept". Never criticise their character. If you attack their character, you will make a bad situation worse. Be careful how you verbalise your message.
  2. Be objective and specific, not emotional and opinionated. The difference between objective language and subjective language. When in conflict, use objective language.
  3. Tell them precisely what is wrong, in non-emotional terms.
  4. Suggest a way out of the conflict situation, by proposing your solution.
  5. Ask them to commit to your solution or give a reason why not.
  6. Distinguish between reasons and excuses for not doing something and have a different policy for each.
  7. Know when to negotiate and when not to.
  8. Give “positive reinforcement” for every step forward.

Real-life conflict situations

Exercise: How would you manage these five real life situations?

Tips for constructive conflict management situations

Summary of key points.

The course content was perfect, with detailed notes that interlinked with the full two-day presentation, including interaction throughout. The trainer was planned and prepared. He presented based on course notes fluently with no need to refer to notes. Maintained focus and attentiveness for full two days.

Leadership and Management Training - Day Two - AM

Time Management Training

Productive Zone - Higher value, But not yet deadline driven, The key zone. Crisis Zone - Higher value, Higher deadline pressure, Crisis management. Fruitless Zone - Lower value, Gossip, Office politics, Pity parties. Busy Zone - Lower value, But deadline driven, Busy but non-productive.

Time management is the art of doing the most valuable things, in the most efficient order. Time managers do not do the easiest, or most pleasant things first, they do the most valuable tasks first.

What is the most valuable use of your time, right now?

Use the two principles of "deadline pressure" and "value" as key indicators.

  1. Q1 Crisis: High value, late work
  2. Q2 Productive: High value: preparation, prevention and planning
  3. Q3 Busy: Low value busy-work
  4. Q4 Fruitless: Waste of time activities, gossip

Distinguish between being "Busy" and being "Productive"

The danger is you become so busy, that you are no longer productive. Our enemy is the busy, but non-productive days.

Time wasters SOS - Self, Others, Systems

  1. Self: Your own bad habits steal your time
  2. Others: Other people who steal your time
  3. Systems: Inefficient work systems

Time Management Exercise

What can you do to minimise the damage done by SOS?

Delegation

Definition: Delegation is the act of entrusting a task to another.
Delegate the right task, to the right person, in the right way.
Exercise: What are the right reasons to delegate? What are the wrong reasons to delegate?

Effective Delegation

How to delegate tasks. Use the same formula we used to set goals.
Review of goal-setting notes. 8 Part SMART.

Why people are afraid to delegate

Four reasons why people who should delegate, sometimes don’t.

Effective Prioritisation

Definition: The art of putting tasks in the right order.
Prioritise your tasks by means of a decision matrix.

Five Types of decision matrix

  1. Priority decision matrix 1: Prioritise by value
  2. Priority decision matrix 2: Prioritise by logical sequence
  3. Yes or No decision: Should I or Should I not?
  4. If yes, then which one, what kind?
  5. One problem – three causes – six solutions mapping

What are the advantages of using a structured approach to decision making?

Managing Interruptions

You are continually peppered by interruptions, which you need to effectively manage.

Strive to make the maximum progress, in the minimum time, without causing offence to anyone.

Managing Interruptions by means of the 80/20 Principle

The 80/20 principle (the Pareto Principle) states that 80% of the value comes from 20% of the content. 80% of the value of the interruption will be in 20% or less of what they say. Your task is to quickly discover the 20% of their message which contains 100% of the value.

You need to work out a formula of words that works for you.

How to use the Pareto 80-20 rule in conversations

How are you going to get the maximum benefit from any interruption, in the minimum amount of time, without causing offence?

Customer Reviews

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

  3. Exceptional planning skills
  4. Advanced conflict management skills
  5. High degree of self-confidence and self-control

View this page on your computer to complete the quiz!

Score yourself out of 10 for each of the following questions. With 10 representing excellence and 0 representing terrible.

1. Your goal focus ability

To what degree would you consider yourself to be a “Goal focused individual”? Meaning: Do you set long range, ambitious goals for yourself and work to achieve them? Or is your philosophy more relaxed? Do you say to yourself, “I’ll take each day as it comes and just go with the flow”?

Score higher for goal focus and lower for “going with the flow”

2. Accurate leadership communication

To what degree would you say that you are an accurate communicator? Do other people understand your exact meaning; or do you sometimes have problems expressing yourself, either verbally or in the written form? Do you feel like you have good team leadership communication skills?

Score higher for “accurate communicator”, and lower if you have “problems with verbal expression”

3. Time management and planning

To what degree are you a good time manager? Do you always plan well-ahead? Are you guided by detailed, written plans; or are you more driven by external circumstances? Do you feel that you are driving the events; or do you feel that the events are driving you?

Score higher for good planner, and lower for being distracted by external events

4. Your conflict management skills

To what degree do conflicts, character clashes and emotional upsets interfere with your productivity?

If interpersonal conflicts do interfere with productivity, then lower the score

5. Self-confidence and self-control

To what degree are you able to manage your own emotions and decide how you will feel today? Are you able to direct your own emotions; or is your emotional state more determined by how things turn-out for you today or how others talk to you?

Score higher if you can manage your own emotions and lower if you feel your emotions are determined by external factors

6. Inspirational abilities

To what degree do you believe you inspire feelings of optimism, confidence and positive motivation (i.e. a positive mental attitude) in the minds of others around you? Do you have a definite positive effect on the minds of others? Or is your effect on others more variable?

Score higher if you think you DO inspire people towards positive emotions, and score lower if you think that you do not
