Leaders Masterclass

Employee engagement and commitment to delivering the company strategy are the two biggest areas of concern for the modern day leader (London Business School, 2017). This class will address both of those concerns and so much more.


About the Programme

This programme brings together academic best practice and real-world experience to allow each participant to develop practical plans that you can easily implement in your organisation to improve organisational performance.

  • I love my work but I find managing staff really stressful.
  • I don’t know what I can say to my staff. 
  • Managing people is the hardest part of my job.
  • Its like treading on eggshells around here (talking about managing your staff).
  • I wish I had more time for my own work, people are taking up too much time.

Whilst it is certainly true that managing staff does have its challenges as no two people are the same, it can also be the most rewarding part of your work. When done effectively, good management and leadership skills enable you to bring the very best out of both yourself and those you manage. Ultimately staff make a business, they are your single biggest investment so taking the time to build effective leadership skills in your organisation is time well spent.
