Leadership & Management Day 1


The Leadership & Management role can can be demanding and new skills are needed to achieve objectives.  Although these skills do not always come naturally they can be learned.

In addition it is now accepted that technical ability or professional knowledge alone is not enough to be a successful leader in today’s competitive business climate.

To be able to interact with others, make decisions, take optimal actions in solving problems, and cope with change or challenges demands something more.  This something more is Emotional Intelligence.

This practical course addresses these demands.  The course is designed to be as practical as possible. The format includes individual and group practice, role-play and input from the course leader.
