  • Do you want to manage team members more effectively and get better results?

  • Are you keen to grow your leadership and management skills?

Learn how to lead and get the best out of others

For ambitious early leaders, this 6-month programme will help you strengthen your leadership skills and advance your career. It will take you on a deep dive into leadership, helping you understand what great leadership looks like, who you are as a leader, and how you can expand your leadership potential.

Using tried and tested leadership models, you’ll learn about different leadership approaches and which ones work best in different situations. We’ll look at the differences between leading and managing and how you know which to do when. You’ll discover your own leadership style and strengths and learn how to work with your limitations.

You’ll discover how to communicate more effectively with team members, set expectations, give proper feedback, set expectations, deal with poor performers and engage team members more effectively. You’ll tackle issues that you might be facing from a leadership perspective and create a 5-year vision for the future.

 Ultimately, you’ll gain a greater sense of personal presence and a deeper sense of confidence in your role as leader, empowering you with the knowledge and skills you need to excel at work and to progress your career into mid-level leadership. 

Great leadership starts with you


Being the best leader begins with knowing yourself, understanding who you are as a leader and how you show up. Based on emotional intelligence, it’s about understanding your emotional responses to situations and tasks, characters and behaviours that you find most challenging. 

Raising your self-awareness will help you to recognise and understand your emotions and the impact they have on both you and on others. Self-management will help you be able to handle your emotions effectively and to channel them, rather than letting them interfere with your priorities and tasks.

We’ll explore who are a leader for, how you are leading, what are your strengths and how you can grow as a leader. We’ll look at the differences between leading and managing and how you can bring out the best in those around you.
