The Internal Compass
Before we can lead others, we need to get ourselves in order as our people in all areas of our organisation look up to us for guidance, direction and behaviour standards.
This initial one day workshop allows all delegate's the opportunity to increase their self-awareness.
As a character trait of world-class leaders, this foundation day focuses on the 4 principles of leadership and how to apply them at the right time for the right outcomes at all times.
What is your Modus Operandi as a leader and how do you lead by example?
We work through the Success Formula allowing moments to reflect and learn from our experiences without the pressure of the next meeting, email, phone call or other distractions.
Leaders will identify their winning habits and self-destructive behaviours as well as their stressors and coping strategies to manage their own Emotional Intelligence.
Where is there 'Wiggle Room' for improvement and how to gain the confidence and deal with the 'Imposter Syndrome' to be the best role model for all to follow.
Leaders will design their own Coat of Arms aligning to their values and principles to deliver authenticity in their leadership approach.
Setting a clear path of direction is a key role of a leader in any organisation whether this is from the very top or through a business unit or department.
Using The Impact Model Leaders can set and steer the strategic direction.
Having a vision is obvious, but communicating it so it is clearly understood and followed is something lacking in many business leaders.
This second day focuses on how you communicate the 'Meaning and Purpose' behind your vision to maximise engagement and productivity.
Strategic planning and reviewing will enable a route map for everyone to follow.
Leaders will enhance their active listening by learning Advanced Communication skills to ensure their message is clearly understood and followed.
By understanding the internal compass in your people, leaders can enable them to deliver the results maximising on their engagement and increase their willingness to perform tasks to the best of their ability.
Leaders will grasp the 4 Enablers of Engagement, inspiring individual and team performances whilst managing workload and preventing burn out.
Employee wellbeing is a risky subject in today's organisations and people want to do a good job, but don't want work to dominate their entire life.
This module gives leaders the knowledge, skills and pragmatic tools to achieve this harmonious relationship.
Leaders will get the opportunity to audit their team performance and the ways and means to nurture better team working through mentoring, development and coaching and how to balance Delegation and Control.
Any leader who states their leadership style as a dominant style is redundant in the modern world. Leaders need to be adaptable to their audience and, whilst being assertive and decisive, they need a toolbox of different approaches to arrive at the best solution.
This interactive and investigative module discovers the benefits of a range of different approaches including
Additionally, leaders will learn how to Lead Change in their organisation by identifying why people typically resist change (The Change Curve) and how to roll with resistance to direct people through the growing pains to higher productivity and best implementation.
The Practical Leadership Bootcamp

They will be required to strategise, plan, prepare, co-ordinate, delegate, project manage, communicate, mitigate, inspire and enable others to deliver the desired outcomes.
As individual leaders they receive 360 written and verbal feedback from their followers and the programme facilitators.
This feedback is collated into a personal action plan for focused implementation back in their workplace.
It’s challenging, fun, enlightening, eye-opening and inspiring providing real tangible benefits personally and organisationally.

“ Having been on leadership and management training throughout my career and been sceptical about the effectiveness, Expressions completely changed my perception. The programme was geared to our specific needs and has been a revelation. For a team about to grow and for a business about to relocate, it was exactly what we needed. We are now implementing further training, through Expressions, for the rest of the company”
