Leadership training has never been more urgent. It is no longer enough for organizations to be well-managed. They must also be well-led.
And to be well-led, they need a robust leadership development program. Our course on The Essentials of Being a Leader is a vital and proven resource for any organization wanting to enhance leadership performance.
The training draws a clear distinction between leadership and management, highlights the essential contribution of both, and explores the hallmarks of great leadership wherever it is found.
Content and materials for The Essentials of Being a Leader is adapted from our proprietary LeaderTrack® Professional Development Series for Managers and Leaders.
We gladly tailor our leadership training to the unique leadership challenges and specific needs of your people. Customization is included in the standard fee.
Delivered worldwide as an in-house, off-site, or conference program. Presentations offered in English only.
Based on the needs and scheduling requirements of your organization, we can conduct this training in a condensed version as a one-day program, or in a two-day or three-day format which expands on the themes of the training. If full-day trainings are not convenient for you, we can break the course into multiple half-day segments.
In North America multi-day trainings can be scheduled on non-consecutive days and may even be weeks apart. This permits you to provide monthly or quarterly leadership training programs and use Essentials of Being a Leader as the curriculum.
