The Leadership Essentials course provides new managers with the foundation to become great leaders by learning and developing a well-rounded and practical leadership skillset. This course prepares participants for their own context; learners leave armed and equipped with a toolbox of personal and interpersonal skills and processes ready to respond to the rapidly evolving world of work.

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at:

  • Managers who are new in their post and need to understand their role as a leader
  • Relatively experienced first-level managers and leaders who are looking for new answers to the challenges of their role
  • An experienced leader whose context has changed and requires new applications of the skills and behaviours that work in this new context


  • Identify and develop your authentic leadership style
  • Learn how to use emotional intelligence to be present and choiceful as a leader
  • Know when you are in survival mindset and shift into a growth mindset
  • Build trust and healthy relationships with those you lead

On completion of the course, your managers and leaders will understand the behaviours and skills relevant to their organisation and longer-term development. They will have increased confidence in their leadership ability and as this confidence grows so will their personal potential and the potential of their teams. Your organisational performance and capacity for change will improve as a result.

Course Outline


We start by focusing on you as a leader, exploring your emotional intelligence and your leadership in context.


We then shift into leading others and how influence, power and motivation helps to lead groups.


You then return to your workplace to apply your learning


One month later, working together, your group and facilitator will share experiences, identify topics for practice and use various techniques to refine and improve your skills
