Leadership is an essential part of managing a team. Some people are natural leaders, but for many, it’s a skill that needs to be developed and practiced.
The challenge is that, in a busy workplace, the importance of leadership development can often be overlooked.
The Leading self programme has been designed to give leaders, or aspiring leaders, insight into themselves, their effectiveness, and the influence and impact they have on the people they manage.
After completing Leading self your people will be able to:

The ability to lead others is an essential part of management. In fact, it could be argued that it’s a non-negotiable management skill.
Some people have a natural tendency towards leadership, but for many, it’s a skill that needs to be learned and practised.
The Leading others programme focuses on your team and how you can bring the best out of your team using some simple, but very effective leadership techniques and skills.

Recruiting the right people is crucial for your workplace. And getting it wrong can cost your business, your team and your customers.
The Recruit for success programme has been designed to help people understand their responsibilities and develop the skills unique to their role when recruiting, helping to make successful hires every time.
After completing Recruit for success, your people will be able to:
New to recruiting? Not sure what’s involved and where to start? Don’t panic! An effective recruitment process will help you find and hire the best candidates for the roles you’re looking to fill. Understanding who you're looking for and how to prepare will set you up for success.
Have you ever considered how your own bias may be influencing the type of team you employ? One of the key things you can do to create a diverse workforce is to have fair hiring practices. Check out our course Recruiting Fairly on how to achieve this.
Your job ad may be the first experience job seekers have with your workplace, so it’s important to get it right. A well-written job ad will ‘sell the role’ and attract some awesome candidates. And it all comes down to the words that you use.
Building a quality candidate shortlist is an essential step in the recruitment process. By focusing on the best candidates for the job, you’ll save time and energy when it comes to interviewing and selection.
An interview is more than just a set of questions. It’s also about how you prepare, how you help your candidates relax, and how you create a positive experience so your candidate WANTS to work for you.
Building and refining interview skills takes practice. To help you get more from your candidates, you’ll need to know how to guide the conversations and listen to their responses so you can understand them. And you’ll also need to know how to manage the unexpected!
Candidate selection is the final step in the hiring process and can be the most challenging. To avoid making a poor decision, you need to take a fair and matter-of-fact approach with each of your candidates. And you’ll need to make reference checks for those you’re considering to support and challenge your decision-making.
