Leadership Skills

A two-day programme exploring the nature of leadership, providing participants with the opportunity to assess their own leadership style and offering them suggestions as to how they might enhance their skills.


This two-day workshop explores the nature of leadership, how leadership differs from management and the skills needed to be an effective leader. The programme provides participants with the opportunity to gain an understanding of their own style preferences as a leader, and where their skills lie in relation to what they require.

The workshop involves a wide range of interventions including facilitator led discussions, individual questionnaires, individual and group exercises and a role-play. All activities are designed to provide the participants with an enhanced understanding of the leadership style preferences and skills. An action planning activity at the end encourages participants to continue their leadership journey by trying out new approaches and gaining new skills post-workshop.


The purpose of this two-day programme is to introduce participants to various facets of leadership, providing them with some insight into their own style preferences and suggestions as to how they may be able to enhance their leadership skills.
