Programme overview
'Achieve success through maximising people skills.'

High-Performance People Skills for Leaders will help you to understand the impact that you have on other people and show you how you can develop strategies to improve your people skills.

This is a hands-on, practical leadership development programme that creates a supportive learning environment in which you can examine and discuss the challenges and successes you face in the day-to-day management of your staff.

The week's schedule for your leadership development ensures that your individual learning needs and management challenges are recognised.

The intensive leadership development programme is challenging and demanding. For some it can represent a new beginning in their professional lives.


Be yourself with greater confidence and effectiveness.

This leadership development programme is founded upon a powerful model of personal effectiveness. It has three components, each of which is a set of skills that the programme is designed to enhance:

1. Interpersonal problem-solving.
This can only be achieved by being confident in your self-knowledge and insight into others. These enable you to develop the best strategies for influencing and motivating people, and for confronting problems in the most effective way possible.

2. Practical applications.
We use practical exercises rather than simulations, and there is a consistent emphasis on you practically applying your learning to your own work challenges and problems. You'll examine and learn from your 'real life' work problems – each participant brings a map of their organisational structure and a 'people problem' to be examined during the programme.

3. Personal feedback.
Before the programme, a 360-degree survey will be completed by your colleagues to provide data on your management skills and development needs. You'll learn about how people perceive your strengths and weaknesses and have the opportunity to develop strategies to reshape your impact on others and how you're seen.

Means awareness of your own unique personal skills and resources. This programme is not about making you a different person, but helping you to 'be yourself' with greater confidence and effectiveness.

Insight into others.
Is the set of skills and activities that will help you in one of the most difficult aspects of management – how to tune your approach to the unique biases and motives of each individual you work with, whether direct report, client, peer
or boss.

Target Audience

This leadership development programme is primarily directed at senior professionals or executives for whom interaction with other people is a key element of your role.
