This programme is intended for managers of business units in an organisation who wish to explore and develop their Leadership skills.
All Managers Lead, but not all leaders manage. This highly practical course raises awareness about what it means to be a Leader. Leadership principles, styles, roles beliefs, behaviours and roles and responsibilities of leaders are explored.
There is a strong emphasis on Situational leadership: to lead not from where you are but from where the other person is. It is not about over analyzing your own preferred style of leadership, but to analyse the requirement of each person who reports to you regarding his/her tasks. As a situational leader, you lead by either offering support, give a specific instruction, delegate tasks and or coach a team member for success.

Differentiating between leadership and management.
