This leadership course moves away from the generic leadership training so often delivered. The two key distinctive features of this highly interactive course are that:

  1. It enables you to understand your own leadership style and strengths.
  2. It enables you to understand and apply some core high performing leadership principles that have been successfully applied within elite sport and cutting-edge businesses.

This interactive, practical course includes the use of a market leading British Psychological Society registered behavioural profile, the Thomas International PPA. Delegates will be required to complete their online assessment at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the course. Assessment administration is handled by the course leaders team. All delegates will receive a copy of their personalised PPA assessment report.

The course is designed to help leaders at all levels, from newly promoted to existing leaders who are looking to develop further their personal leadership skills. It would also be of benefit to those training aspiring middle and senior leaders.

“Only by knowing yourself can you be an effective leader.” Vince Lombardi
