Our leaders today face a fast-paced, demanding, and continually changing workplace. Businesses, organizations, and non-profits need leaders who have a vision, the ability to lead as well as the ability to influence others towards a common goal. This two-day course is designed for supervisors and managers to take a step back from their busy schedules and understand that who they are as a leader affects how they lead. The results teams achieve are influenced by how the leader connects with the group and interprets the environment in which they are leading. The Leadership Essentials course has been designed to support and challenge a leader in their ability to manage themselves and the organizations they lead to achieve results.
