Overview

Develop the skills to be an effective and successful leader. High impact leaders have the ability to lead and influence others toward a common goal.  To do this you must develop your own toolbox of strategies – to maintain engagement, to build collaborative support and to master conflict while remaining true to your authentic self.

Upon completing this course, learners will be able to design an effective influence strategy to accomplish goals, even without formal authority. You’ll be able to recognise team dynamics and identify ways to help each member contribute more effectively. Through exercises and lessons, you’ll pinpoint problems and challenges in the way you (and your teams) make decisions. Finally, you’ll walk away with a concrete plan for continuing to expand your situational adaptability as a leader, allowing you to adjust with fluency and achieve your fullest potential.
