Leadership Skills

Start Date: June 03, 2015 | Duration : 2 days | Price : 4500 AED

Context to this Workshop

  • There is a distinct difference between ‘managing’ and ‘leading’
  • Managing the business agenda often takes precident over leading people in the drive for business results
  • Yet, business results are enhanced and more sustainable when employees are effectively led
  • In the drive for business results, the subtleties of using an adaptive leadership style to deal with subordinates through situational leadership is often lost
  • There are often misconceptions by leaders about their impact on employees and to what extent their own leadership development can influence employees into more positive action and ultimately business results
  • By definition, managers are under pressure to deliver results and so need practical and pragmatic leadership skills and insight for immediate application
