Developing your Leadership Styles

COURSE OVERVIEW

For people wanting to stand out within their workplace and gain new responsibilities, few things accelerate their careers like demonstrating superior leadership skills.

Leadership style refers to an approach taken by a particular leader. It might refer to a directive or commanding style or a participative or collaborative style. It might equally refer to a leader who has a visionary style or who is coaching-centered. Some leaders are prone to use one general style in almost all situations. Other leaders “flex” their style to meet the particular needs of each situation encountered.

It is important however, for the leaders to know what their main style preferences are, so that they can evaluate the likely effectiveness of that style in a given situation.  Ultimately, the best leadership style may the one that's the most adaptable – a leader who's willing to move and bend his style to best fit into the situation.

The course is designed for experienced managers seeking to understand the leadership styles used in their own organization, and to develop their range of leadership styles, and apply these to differing work contexts and demands.
