Training workshop - The effective leader - July 2024

This event is designed for new leaders or those experienced in leadership positions with little formal development to be an effective leader. The training workshop will support attendees to effectively lead themselves and their teams to deliver high performance in their organisation.
The training workshop will be delivered interactively with the participant firmly at the centre of the learning. This will not be a ‘hard to apply theory’ session, but a practical hands-on session where every issue, question and challenge will be answered. John will ensure a safe learning environment to ensure all participants can get the most out of the sessions.

By the end of the session attendees will be able to:

Skilfully deploy effective leadership and management behaviours to lead their teams and deliver high performance Identify their own leadership style and feel confident and competent to lead their teams in challenging situations Create a robust development plan to continue their leadership journey All attendees will come away from the workshop with: A workbook A robust action plan to continue their journey, and A free 30-minute follow up coaching call with John, one month later to embed their leadership journey

Please also note that pre-work will be emailed to each attendee before joining the session, to ensure they have the best opportunity to get the most out of the session.
