The High Impact Leader

Perfect for senior leaders looking to amplify their influence, enhance their leadership skills and make their organisations more competitive.
Full day


This course is aimed at people who work at a Senior Leadership level who want space to think about how they are leading.

The session will support you in considering the organisational culture you are creating, how to ensure people are collaborating and able to innovate effectively, and you will gain an understanding of how to motivate and engage teams after a period of huge uncertainty.

You will be given assessment tools to use following the session that will allow you to critique your approach and gain feedback from your teams to ensure the approach you are taking is motivating and challenging whilst supportive.

(Please note, there is a small amount of overlap between the content of this course and Beyond the Pandemic: Brilliant Leaders, Thriving Teams. We wouldn't recommend you book both to avoid any duplication.)

The High Impact Leadership course was a very worthwhile training event. The facilitator was really knowledgeable and we covered a lot of ground in a day. I came away with a number of new strategies and I have already used some of them.
