Practical leadership

1. Leadership (basic)

  • Guiding actions
  • Conduct interview
  • Motivate and inspire
  • Delegate

Why this training?

The influencing of employees is the crucial factor for success as a manager. Placing your own experiences in a practical framework and learning to know your own strengths and weaknesses is an important step towards effective management.

In this training you will learn to know the most important do’s and don’ts in leadership. According to the latest insights about leadership, the own working situation will be viewed. We take a look at the latest insights about behavioural influencing and what this means for leadership. We also consider the difference between managing and leadership by looking at both of them. What are the result areas you focus on, like quality, finances, processes, service etc. What is the role of employees in relation to the result areas. And what does this require from your people. Who do you have in your team, what is the next step you would like them to take, what motivates your employees, in which life-phase are they, where is focus needed per result area and which behaviour does this require from the involved employee.

By creating a clear link between desired results and necessary behaviour of employees, you are able to define where growth is wanted. When you are capable to deploy that form of leadership, effective for achieving the desired movement, you have passed!
