Senior Managers Advanced Leadership Training Course Content

Senior Managers Advanced Leadership Training - Day One - AM


The role of the senior team, the high-level leaders and managers, is to harness the productive power of the whole group in order to achieve a definite, predetermined purpose.

In order to do that, the leaders must know how to get the best performance from themselves and others. So, the question we start with is this:

How can you get the best performance from yourself and others?

The answer to that is: Develop the six major leadership skills. There are very many leadership skills, but they can be organised into a system made up of six major sets.

  • Clear vision
  • Clear communication
  • Proper planning
  • Handle conflict
  • Inspire yourself
  • Inspire others

The importance of providing a clear and optimistic vision

All great leaders are great because they offer a clear vision of a better future. Every leader needs to develop the quality of “clarity of purpose”.

Generally, we all share the same purpose: The purpose of your organisation is to add value to your customers, by means of providing excellent products and services and by forming mutually beneficial relationships.

How we do that in specific terms varies. But the principle is the same for us all.

We need to have a clear and optimistic vision for the future.
We need to be able to create and communicate a clear vision.

Exercises in expressing the vision.

  1. What is your vision for your organisation?
  2. How do you communicate your vision to all those who need to know?
  3. Notes and guidance in good communication skills.
  4. Practical Exercises: Learn by doing.

Part Two: The plan.

The vision is the goal. All goals need practical plans that are capable of transforming the vision into a reality. The leader must be able to coordinate the team and create a coherent plan that is the practical expression of the vision.

This introduces the concept of the P-LIST activities. The P list activities is a list of skills all starting with the letter P.

Planning, prioritisation, preparation, prediction. problem solving, prevention of avoidable error.

Exercises in expressing the P List activities

Decision making:

  1. What is the priority?
  2. Problem cause solution?
  3. Prevention of error?
  4. Prediction of problems?
  5. Notes and guidance
  6. Practical Exercises: Learn by doing

The course content was very interesting and full of information that is clearly put across to the audience. All course content was relevant to both business and personal life. Helpful! Gez was very good at putting information across. I found I could listen and not feel bored. Very informative and enthusiastic.

Part Three. Mental attitude:

The plan needs to be backed up with a positive mental attitude.

Attitudes are the sum of the thoughts and feelings about any issue.

Attitudes affect results in the following way:

Thoughts - Feelings - Actions - Results

Thoughts and feelings affect actions, and actions affect the results.

So, your thoughts and feelings affect the bottom line results.

It is important the leaders are very aware of the attitudes (thoughts and feelings) that are prevalent in their organisation.

All leaders need to develop their Emotional intelligence skills.

The rule is simple:

  • Negative attitudes (Doubt, fear, anger, resentment) tend to create negative results
  • Positive attitudes (Optimism, courage, enthusiasm, cooperativeness) tend to create positive results

The question we must now answer is this:

How specifically, can we create and sustain a positive mental attitude, especially during tough times.

Ideas and exercises describing exactly how you can improve your abilities to create a positive attitude in yourself and others.

  • Mind control. (Control the content of your own mind)
  • Conversation control. (Control the content of your own conversation)
  • Conversation control part II (Control the content of other people’s conversations)

Part four: The Super 8 leadership questions.

The company culture needs to align itself with the principles of successful action.

All successful action can be described by the following diagram.

Feedback Cycle

Using the diagram to inspire others.

This model suggests 8 leadership questions that need to be continually asked by you and answered by your team.

  1. What is the vision, the goal, the purpose of this organisation?
  2. How detailed are our plans which are designed to help us achieve our purpose?
  3. How are we currently organised to effectively implement our plan?
  4. By what means are we measuring our feedback results?
  5. What positive feedback are we currently getting from our stakeholders?
  6. What negative feedback are we currently getting from our stakeholders?
  7. In relation to the negative feedback, what adaptive changes do we need to make to our current plan of action that will get us back on track and take us to our goals?
  8. In relation to positive feedback what further adaptive changes might we consider in pursuit of continuous improvement?

These questions are to be memorised and to be continually asked by the you.

Every day, you ask all eight questions and expect good answers from the team.

If you ask and demand answers to these 8 questions you will guide your organisation to success.

Application of these Super 8 leadership questions.

  1. Additional Notes and guidance.
  2. Practical Exercises: Learn by doing.

Summary action plan.

The course content was very good, useful and relates directly to the working environment. Real life scenarios. Would recommend to other people. The trainer's presentation was very good, and he gave good examples and provided solutions to situations. He was clear and clarified anything that wasn't understood.

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!
