Unleash Your Leadership Potential Leadership

The transition from an individual contributor to manager is one of the most difficult, yet critical shifts in any leader's career. Most new managers are promoted for their exceptional performance as an individual. However, being an effective manager demands a deeper awareness of one's leadership impact and ability to drive team performance.

This programme is designed to help rising leaders identify and refine their personal leadership styles, develop their emotional intelligence, and acquire the skills that will enable them to bring out the best in others.

Over five days, you will gain perspectives on how you are perceived, learn to connect with others, and identify areas of growth. The programme also includes a small group coaching session that will help you establish a personal development plan that you can implement within a three to five-year timeframe for sustained career advancement.
