Developing Leadership Competencies
The foundation to leadership success is the development of core competencies. This full day course will focus on leadership competencies, skill development and effective behaviours that will lead to enhanced leadership and superior performance in the workplace. Learn about key leadership competencies, what they mean in practice, the differences between management and leadership, and how they fit into the big picture of your strategic objectives and leadership style.
Three categories of core competencies will be explored:
- interpersonal – how leaders interact with their teams, partners and stakeholders (emotional intelligence, building relationships, character leadership, mobilizing people, leading others, collaboration and conflict management),
- logistical – the skills that leaders use to plan and execute projects (vision, strategy, promoting innovation, guiding change, decision making, task delegation and achieving results), and
- internal – how leaders perceive themselves and their commitment to growth (self awareness, leadership style, growth mindset, integrity, respect, and accountability).
Tools and techniques will be shared as well as examples of leadership competencies in action.
Bonus: All participants will complete an EQi Leadership assessment prior to the course, and receive a twenty-seven page report that outlines their strengths and weaknesses/areas of improvement across fifteen leadership competencies as well as four leadership styles.
