We tailor all our courses to reflect the needs of the delegates.
We will include many of the exercises listed below, and any additional material that the trainers feel is relevant.
Why Have You Come?
You will be asked to talk about what you are looking for from the course.
This is your opportunity to help your trainers shape the course to your specific needs.
- What is leadership?
- What qualities or skills do you need to be a leader?
- What kind of leader are you now?
- What kind of leader do you want to be?
- Where are the gaps in your leadership skills?
- Acknowledgement of skills you have already.
Discussion of the pros and cons of the leadership styles of world leaders. You’ll look at a leader who uses each of these styles:
Using John Adair’s concept of Action Centred Leadership we will look at the allocation of tasks
Who am I?
Working with the style sheets from your preparation work you will look at:
How you view yourself.
How you're viewed by others.
The similarities and anomalies between the two.
You'll look at personal values, exploring how those values define you as a leader.
And how leadership behaviours are shaped by our values.
Speaking From the Why?
We'll use the Simon Sinek Ted talk on how leaders inspire action.
You'll get to work on your own Golden Circle of what/how/why.
Then, you'll deliver it from the outside in and the inside out.
Here you will describe and work on a leadership initiative that is current for you.
You'll look at defining a clear vision of how you want this initiative to be.
You'll spend some time on the who, what, why, where, when and how of it.
You will identify the first three steps required to begin the initiative.
And develop a plan to begin the initiative that evening.
We'll start with a recap of what has already been covered and set the focus for day two.
Time to process your thoughts on your leadership initiative.
Time to talk about any other insights you've had overnight.
Trust and Risk
This is an experiential exercise to help you explore your response to risk and learn how to develop trust.
Developing into a discussion on delegation and responsibility.
During the rest of the day, you will be asked to talk about situations in your own leadership for which you need support to move things on.
We will offer a selection of tools and techniques including:
- Conflict management
- Giving difficult messages
- Giving effective feedback
- Managing meetings
The following processes may be included depending on time and the wants of the delegates:
In this exercise, we will practise motivating others, including:
Using your own motivators
Using the other person's motivators
What is the difference in impact?
Making decisions is a vital part of leadership but one that often causes consternation.
We will begin with a look at some of the things that can go wrong with decision-making before introducing some practical decision-making tools.
In this exercise, we will explore how different people react to change and how they can be helped back to a place of comfort.
This is a group exercise in dealing with obtuse or difficult people.
It demonstrates how hard it can be to get your point across in the face of other people either misunderstanding you or choosing to make things difficult for you.
This will include learning what you can do to avoid being hooked in.
Moving and Shaking
Everyone will be given feedback on their personal leadership qualities as seen by other members of the group.
You’ll be asked to think about what you are going to do differently to make something specific happen in your organisation.
You will be helped to develop a strategy for implementing your new leadership skills.
Getting really specific and using your scenarios, looking at best and worst case outcomes, examining what support you'll need and developing backup plans.
You will identify what will stop you putting your plans into practice and what support you need going forward.
We will give out Impact Factory documents to support the course.
