Workshop 1: Effective Behaviour
This workshop explores the behaviours and actions of effective leaders and aims to enable delegates to see ways in which high impact communication skills and personal responsibility can make a real difference to their own personal performance and to that of the organisation. Consideration is given to how each person can ensure that the values and beliefs of the organisation are at the heart of their work and that their actions contribute to organisational success.

Workshop Two – Leading in Times of Change
This workshop considers the impact of change on employees and particularly on Leaders. All organisations are faced currently with a variety of internal and external pressures. Internal and external customers have a range of changing expectations not least with regards to service improvement and provision. Organisational success comes from appropriately responding to changing situations. As part of their contribution to this Leaders need to be able to motivate, support and encourage others through change. On a personal level this means you need to be ready and able to work effectively in the changing environment.

Workshop Three: Task, Team or Individual
This workshop explores the actions and roles of Leaders, with reference to a popular and effective model of effective leadership. During the workshop delegates have the opportunity to further their own ability to motivate, support and encourage others to achieve tasks. We also consider motivation in depth together with some consideration of coaching and supporting others.

Excellently presented. Content and pace of the training tailored to our own needs.

I really enjoyed the course and feel a lot more comfortable and confident about going back to work and putting all I have learnt into practice.

I really enjoyed the course. It gave me the opportunity to examine parts of my work, working environment and overall objectives that I don’t get the space to think about in my everyday work.

I found the communication skills very useful as I have had trouble in the past expressing myself. I have learnt some useful tips which I am going to put into practice when I get back to work.

Developing my time management skills will affect my output with customers and in achieving British Council goals.
