Throughout history, it seems that leadership matters. Every significant turn of events hinges on a crisis of leadership, a failure of leadership or – thankfully – the triumph of leadership. Human societies, governments, and businesses rise and fall according to the quality of leadership available at the time.
This raises an interesting question: What is leadership? Even if we answer that question, that only leads to another question: What makes for a good leader? Are they born, bred or both? Before we can go very far in deciding how to become better leaders, we need to decide exactly what that means. Traditionally, a person is considered to be a leader because they have a position or a title. This position supposedly gives them some kind of authority to give people directions and this giving of directions has been equated with leadership.
Too often, we say leading when we really mean managing. However, you can be a good manager without being a particularly good leader. In this one-day Exceptional Leadership Skills course, participants will explore the difference between leading and managing, identify their leadership quotient, discover the 3 key characteristics of exceptional leaders, and develop an action plan to increase their effectiveness in these key areas. Includes 6 e-learning videos.
