There is a great deal of interest in the business world today in the area of tailor-made programmes for leadership development. These programmes are enormously important in the terms of helping individuals and companies achieve mastery in leadership, personal development and in creating coaching cultures. In developing a wise, three-pronged competency based approach, a leadership programme will lead to insight and effectiveness enabling the growth of an individual and success as a leader. Engaging in such a programme will give you a deep sense of self, mindfulness, mastery of interpersonal skills and excellent neuroplasticity that allows you to be a real thought leader.
The significance of such a programme is that it will enable those you work with to be inspired, engaged and resilient with more capacity than when you started. This type of programme will support you to do what you set out to do and supply peer coaching development. It is a powerful vehicle to grow a coaching culture that values and builds on the expertise of your people and advances internal leadership capability well beyond what you think is possible.
Included in these programmes can be components such as collaborative inspired leadership, moving from management and technical expertise to inspired leadership, coaching and mentoring which teaches how to develop your people, inspire, motivate and challenge one on one and facilitating teams and groups, building, engaging and motivating teams and groups. They also teach how to build resilience, how to build adaptable, healthy performance cultures, facilitating meetings and events through practical techniques and strategies to strengthen communication and outcomes. There is also concentration on presenting with presence and confidence, strategic visioning and direction, peer learning, with on-going learning and practice models for small peer groups and learning excellent in relationship skills.
From the beginning, a programme like this will create collaborative and effective relationships with the key sponsor(s) in the organisation. They welcome on-going open and frank dialogue and feedback, and aim to model direct communication and effective leadership skills. Their leadership development will actively contribute to the long-term heath, performance and success of your business.
It is acknowledged today that to be both effective and inspirational as a leader, not only requires profession-specific operational expertise (managing/doing), but essential people skills and self-awareness (leading/being). Smart, energetic, inspiring, effective and connected leadership is vital today in our families, communities, organisations and in each of us. Enrolling in one of these leadership programmes will help you to focus on the important as well as the urgent and help increase your personal resilience and wellbeing.
