This course is part of the Leading Self programme and focuses on the value of having a clear plan and strategy to help you manage your work.
Everyone gets the same 24 hours, so why do some people manage to achieve so much more with their time than others? The answer lies in good time management. Without a clear plan and strategy to properly manage your work, you run the risk of being busy but ineffective, overcommitted, overwhelmed, and overworked. A great way to determine whether you’re managing your time well is to assess how you currently work. Once you know where you’re spending your time and energy, you can begin to take actions to work smarter, rather than harder.
This course is part of the Leading Self programme and focuses on the value of setting goals for long-term visions and short-term motivation.
Research clearly shows that setting goals not only affects your behaviour and job performance, but also helps to keep you energised. A critical part of being a successful leader is setting goals, and coming up with plans to achieve these. Your goals should be linked to a purpose, which will inspire teamwork and innovation, and give your team the internal motivation to bring their best self to work.
This course is part of the Leading Self programme and introduces you to the methods of communication and highlights the importance of leaders being skilled in this area.
Communication is considered the real work of leadership; you can’t be a great leader until you’re a great communicator. The first step towards mastering this is knowing yourself and what makes you tick. It’s also vitally important that you understand your tone and how to use this effectively, recognise the unspoken messages in your body language, and master active listening.
This course is part of the Leading Self programme and will introduce you to the behaviours that leaders should demonstrate when they are leading a team.
Leadership is all about working with people; having the ability to build and nurture a culture of trust within your team. Your team should feel confident that they can rely on you to be truthful and to do as you say. They should understand their purpose, roles and responsibilities, feel listened to, valued and comfortable and confident to ask questions and challenge thinking.

This course is part of the Leading Self programme and will introduce you to different personality styles and help you recognise how these influence behaviour.
Your personality style has a massive influence on your behaviour.When you understand why you behave or respond in certain ways, then you’ve made the first step towards figuring out how to work more effectively with others. And, when you know others’ styles, you can more easily adapt your behaviours to create better working relationships and get the best out of your team.
This course is part of the Leading Self programme and will encourage you to think about your values and reflect on how these influence you, as a leader.
The first step in becoming a successful leader, an any level, is to truly understand yourself. Knowing your values is an important part of this because your values have a huge influence on the way you behave and the decisions you make. When you understand your behaviour and recognise how others see you, then you’re well on your way to becoming a self-aware leader.
