Good Leaders Succeed; Great Leaders Excel


Course introduction

Everything rises and falls according to the level of leadership. Vision of an organisation can be sustained only through the commitment, capability and capacity of its leadership. Good leaders will succeed in some ways but great leaders will excel and scale the organisation to a higher level.
What set great leaders a cut above the pile is the mastery of 7 key dimensions in transformational leadership. Managers who are competent and succeeding can identify and bridge gaps in these 7 dimensions of leadership to sharpen their growth and fully realise their leadership potential.
This course will equip participants with essential leadership skills in these 7 core leadership competencies. Current research findings will be presented and a theoretical framework internalised through case studies and workplace applications. Participants by the end of the course will be equipped with skills and practical applications to develop as more effective managers and leaders in the workplace.
