Details

Effective and respected leaders have a clear starting point – they know the characteristics, behaviours and attitudes essential to achieve their vision. They also have the qualities that inspire their people to follow them and share that vision.

This course will introduce you to different models of leadership and practical tools to help you shape your personal style of leadership and make you a more effective leader.

Run as it features here, or run in-house where the content can be tailored to suit your organisational needs; cost effective if a number of people require training. Request a call back and one of our consultants will get in touch to discuss your needs.

Course Tutors

Mr Jon Davidge

Jon worked at Board level in publishing and media businesses before turning full-time to coaching and consulting in 2002. He specialises in leadership and team development in the cause of better working environments and more successful enterprises; long-term passions of his. Jon’s clients have typically valued his practical experience as much as his coaching skills – he claims that it’s the former that earns him the right to practice the latter. His approach is to help clients experience a sanctuary in which to reflect on their work and relationships and see them from a critical distance before determining fresh courses of action. These resolutions are tested and rehearsed in the safety of the coaching relationship until pipe dreams become probabilities.
