What you'll learn on the course
This two-day programme equips leaders working at Bands 5 and 6 to hold tricky conversations sooner and more effectively, to understand different personality preferences, to recognise the importance of goals and teamwork, and how to model good leadership.
Our workshop focuses on having tricky conversations on day 1, then on practical leadership skills more generally on day 2.
Day 1 – Having Tricky Conversations
This interactive workshop explores several aspects of having 'difficult' conversations, including how we resource and manage ourselves, how to have authoritative interpersonal conversations, assertion skills, and tactical influencing - how can we best tailor messages to particular individuals. The workshop is for people who want to find better ways to do their job and deliver their services.
Day 2 – Practical Leadership
Band 5 and 6 leaders are at the start of their leadership experience. It can be challenging, energising, demanding and fulfilling. This interactive workshop focuses on the practical aspects of leadership, examining how to manage both the work and the people effectively. We’ll examine team purpose and identity, how to manage a shift, how to motivate people, building trust and team cooperation and modelling good leadership.
