Leading with authenticity

Course summary

Our Leading with authenticity course, aimed at senior managers, will enhance your leadership performance by tapping into your individual characteristics, values and competences.

In today’s environment, effective leaders combine a personalised mix of skills, capacities and experience with insight, intelligence and story-telling to effectively promote their vision and increase engagement with their organisational and long-term objectives.

This one-day Leadership training course provides the opportunity to explore effective styles of leadership and their impact, the markers of outstanding leadership and the personal characteristics and values that define your authenticity. It offers an excellent chance to reflect on your experience with others with a mixed peer group, to share approaches and challenges, and increase your impact and effectiveness as a leader.

“The course absolutely met my objectives - it was brilliant! This was an excellent one-day course, it was really engaging and covered a lot of ground really well.”

“A very good experience. I've learnt that the core of developing my team is to understand my own and my team's values and how we then work together with these in mind.”
