Leadership Development Programme

It is common for people with good operational skills who demonstrate technical competence to be promoted to managerial or leadership positions before they are adequately equipped. This occurs because of an often-incorrect assumption that functional competence will transform into good leadership and that leadership is a skill that does not have to be taught or practised.

So, what makes a good leader and how similar are leadership and management roles?

A very quick Google search on leadership will reveal a number of myths about leaders and leadership. Some of the most common are:

  • Great leaders are born, not made
  • You have to be the boss to be a good leader
  • Leaders have all the answers
  • All good leaders are charismatic

We believe that good leaders perform better as managers, largely because they enjoy a greater level of support from their subordinates. It follows therefore that we encourage all staff who have aspirations for promotion, to prepare well in advance for supervisory and managerial roles by studying and practising leadership skills as soon as possible.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Our LDP is intended for high-potential staff with managerial aspirations, as well as those who are already senior managers or executives, including heads of department, section heads or divisional heads with more than one team reporting to them. Delegates will gain critical skills and knowledge enabling them to influence others to accomplish objectives, and to build goal-directed, motivated and successful teams.

The course is about Leadership, not the functional day-to-day activities of management which we offer in a number of other programmes.
