They say that leaders are born, not made. While it is true that some people are born leaders, some leaders are born in the midst of adversity. Often, simple people who have never had a leadership role will stand up and take the lead when a situation they care about requires it. A simple example is parenting. When a child arrives, many parents discover leadership abilities they never knew existed in order to guide and protect their offspring.
Once you learn the techniques of true Leadership And Influence, you will be able to build the confidence it takes to take the lead. The more experience you have acting as a genuine leader, the easier it will be for you. It is never easy to take the lead, as you will need to make decisions and face challenges, but it can become natural and rewarding.

The Evolution of leadership
In this module we look at why different leadership styles can be effective, and which leadership style suits your personality.
We focus on the Hersey & Blanchard Situational Leadership Model which addresses the attributes and styles of others.
A personal inventory
We look at the abilities you need to lead and influence others.
Modeling the way and inspiring a shared vision
The best leaders are great role models. They ‘walk the talk’, lead from the front, and inspire others with their vision.
Challenging the Process
Leaders search out ways to innovate and improve. They are willing to experiment, take risks and learn from mistakes.
Enabling others to act and encouraging the heart
All leaders need to develop others so they can delegate tasks confidently. They treat followers with respect, sharing rewards and the credit for success.
A vision without specific goals is just a wish or a hope. A vision needs a project roadmap with actions and milestones, so we discuss how to set and support your goals.
