What you will learn
Developing Leadership Practice helps participants develop new ways to revitalise team members and inspire employee engagement by developing a fresh way of looking at performance as a leader and developing the ability to perform in a constantly pressurised environment.
By developing a broader grasp of how to lead yourself, others and organisations and exploring the dilemmas faced by leaders in a variety of creative and engaging ways, we will help you build your capabilities and develop your confidence to lead high performing teams and cross-functional initiatives. As a result your organisation will benefit from a leader who can achieve results in a resource constrained environment and improve people performance by developing confidence and resilience.
Evidence and experience tells us that leadership development cannot happen in the classroom alone. This is why The Praxis Centre for Leadership Development utilises a blended learning approach.
There are three themes:
- Leading self in your context
- Leading others in your context
- Leading organisations in your context
