Developing Leadership Styles and Behaviours

Subject category: Leadership and Management

Course overview

This programme will support managers to develop their leadership skills and abilities. During the programme, managers will analyse their own leadership styles and the impact these can have on themselves and others within their staff teams. Good leadership requires deep human qualities, beyond conventional notions of authority, and to become a good leader managers need to have the required attitudes and behaviours that demonstrate their ability to lead their teams and organisations to a high standard.
Managers will explore the subject of Emotional Intelligence and understand how their behaviour within a senior role can impact on others. They will also explore how Emotional Intelligence supports the development of a more effective leader.
The programme will support managers to develop skills in understanding the importance of innovation and change, by explaining to managers why we need change within the organisation. The programme will explore how to propose innovative solutions to improve organisational performance, including assessing opportunities for innovation, ranges of techniques to generate innovative options and the leadership skills required to lead innovation and change.
Managers will also explore how to lead and manage change within their organisation by creating a change management plan, and ways to implement the change within the management plan and monitor the progress against agreed targets.
During the programme managers will be supported to understand how a business plan is structured, when it is appropriate to write one, and how it is linked to the overall business strategy. Along with the implementation of the plan, the whole team will need to work alongside the plan to gain outstanding results.
Finally, managers will learn how to use negotiation skills, including body language, communication and listening skills, in order to encourage a positive outcome to take business ideas forward, and supporting them on how to deal with difficult negotiation situations. The managers will gain an understanding of the importance of influencing without authority and how to utilise these skills to help drive the business forward.
