Competent Manager Training Course Content

What is leadership?

Leadership is the art of inspiring, motivating, and influencing others to work towards achieving a common goal. In this course, you will learn about the different leadership styles and models, and how to apply them to suit different situations and teams.

Leadership behaviour

Leadership behaviour is a critical aspect of effective leadership. You will learn about the importance of understanding your leadership style and how it impacts your team. Our trainers will guide you through the process of identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and provide you with tools and techniques to help you become a more effective leader.

Qualities of an effective leader

What makes a great leader? We explore the essential qualities that every effective leader should possess, such as empathy, vision, communication, and decision-making. Our trainers will help you develop these qualities and integrate them into your leadership style.

Leadership styles – self assessment

There is no one-size-fits-all leadership style. Take a self-assessment to identify your leadership style and understand how it affects your team. Our trainers will help you leverage your strengths and develop strategies to overcome any potential weaknesses.

Situational leadership

Different situations call for different leadership styles. Learn about situational leadership and how to adapt your leadership style to fit different scenarios. Our trainers will provide you with practical tools and techniques to help you become a more agile and effective leader.

Practical application of leadership models and theory

Theory is great, but it’s not always easy to put into practice. In this course, we focus on the practical application of leadership models and theory. You will learn how to apply these models and theories to real-world situations, allowing you to become a more effective and confident leader.

Achieving trust and respect as a leader

Trust and respect are crucial components of effective leadership. Learn how to build trust and respect with your team and colleagues. Our trainers will guide you through practical exercises that will help you establish yourself as a trustworthy and respected leader.

Personal development planning

Effective leadership requires ongoing personal development. In this course, you will learn about the importance of personal development planning and how to create a plan that suits your leadership style and goals. Our trainers will provide you with guidance and support to help you achieve your personal and professional objectives.
