How to Lead Effectively: 18 plus

In this module, you’ll be introduced to the foundational principles of leadership and how to successfully lead in a challenging and changing world that continues to test us all. You’ll explore new approaches to dealing with complex organisational structures and how to take conscious action on the task we all have ahead of us, but also how to proceed with the leadership problems that are most important to you.

You will also learn more about the importance of change initiatives, in determining whether the goals or objectives are achieved, why most of these initiatives fail, and what can be done to fix them.

Finally, you will also reflect on the importance of emotional intelligence as a key component in successful long-term leadership and how to apply it to develop trust, manage uncomfortable conversations, and strengthen teams.
