Training Course Overview

Directors must develop and enhance both the ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ skills needed for strategic leadership to win the “hearts and minds” of their employees. Developing top leaders is an art not a science. Leaders must inspire and motivate, whilst also having the long sighted abilities to create Vision and set organisational direction. They must have excellent inter-personal skills, whilst also being able to analyse financial reports. They must develop excellent stakeholder relationships, be clear about organisational priorities and have the ability to resolve conflicts and achieve compromises. This training course meets those challenges head-on.
