Leadership Essentials Program

The Leadership Essentials Program from Developing Leaders. The perfect program for people looking to develop the core practical skills and behaviours of leadership while also juggling a busy work role. Eight leadership workshops delivered virtually (online via Zoom) every fortnight across 4 months, this program will help you build core leadership behaviours and practical skills to set you apart from the rest. 

Whether you’re a manager, supervisor, small business owner or just someone looking to develop their leadership skills, the Leadership Essentials Program will give you the tools and confidence to lead with purpose.

This program is perfect for businesses with leaders and managers in multiple States, and you need a leadership program delivered to a consistently high standard for everyone.

You’ll learn how to manage your own time and role, build positive relationships with colleagues and team members, create a positive team culture, make decisions with clarity and purpose, confidently deliver feedback, handle difficult conversations, and much more. 

The Leadership Essentials Program is designed to develop practical leadership skills across the five core leadership competencies. These competencies are: Purpose and Values, Task Management, Managing Self, Team Altitude and Adaptability. 

  • Purpose and Values underpin behaviour and provide the drive, grit, resilience and vision for the leader. Alignment Leadership traits focus on a leader’s purpose and values.
  • Task Management is essential for staying on track. Responsible, organised, task-focussed and reliable leaders achieve results for themselves and their team. Achievement Leadership traits focus on a leader’s task management abilities.
  • Managing Self is essential before leading others. Solid self-awareness coupled with self-belief, assertiveness and clarity provide the foundation to lead others. Awareness Leadership traits focus on managing oneself effectively.
  • Team Altitude is determined by team attitude. The ability to communicate effectively, provide timely feedback, actively listen and maintain accountability ensure the team reaches its optimal performance. Altitude Leadership traits focus on team behaviours that can ‘lift’ or ‘drag’ performance. 
  • Adaptability is key to business success as highly effective leaders know how to adapt their own leadership qualities to their team, their management style, purpose and business environment. Adaptability Leadership traits focus on a leader’s ability to anticipate changes in situations and adjust accordingly
