High Impact Leadership

This high-impact programme will give leaders a crystal clear, 360-degree view of their strengths and development areas, using a globally recognised leadership framework from thought leaders Kouzes and Posner. You will receive a thorough feedback report on the behaviours that you display and are observed by your peers and colleagues. This will help you to develop a personal leadership development plan to implement when you return to the workplace. As well as learning a set of essential leadership strategies, you will leave the course with a heightened sense of self-awareness and a plan for how to develop your personal impact in the long term.

This course is designed to help leaders increase their impact and influence in order to inspire people at all levels and develop a competitive edge for their organisations.

You will also look at ways to become a more agile learner and promote a culture of lifelong learning for your teams, empowering and inspiring people to become accountable for their own success.
