Overview

A 2 day module held at venues across the UK.

Leadership as an action rather than a role designation. It is the development of leadership practices and behaviours through individual and group reflection with the goal of creating new behaviours and mindsets.

Teams often work in environments where they have little power over their fellow team members and holding team members accountable for their actions can be difficult. Individual members must develop and use skills of negotiation, influence, and persuasion to get work done. Individuals, no matter their title or level within an organisation, have opportunities within their teams to exercise leadership and consciously reflect on their actions in real-time. It is the constant consciousness and intent of personal and team learning that leads to perspective change and refines and enhances leadership practices and behaviours (David Schmittlein, MIT Sloan).

This course reflects current practice in Leadership in Action and allows delegates to develop and expand their high-level understanding and their application of leadership skills in the workplace. Delegates will engage in a range of group and individual workshop activities where role play, scenario setting, thought leadership activity and didactic learning will take place.

At this level, the workshops will focus on individual self-awareness and the emotional response to a range of work based scenarios and the effect this has on the decision-making process. A range of theories will be used to expand and challenge pre-conceptions of current leadership practices.

The taught elements will include an overview of the following areas, providing sc
