Course description

Managers are leaders in their own right and it is therefore important that they have effective leadership skills. Leadership skills are necessary for the efficient running of a company. Without effective leadership managers whither under pressure, communicate poorly with staff, promote lower morale, delegate responsibility inefficiently and cost companies money. When managers are equipped with the necessary leadership skills they make the correct split-second decisions under pressure, inspire confidence in their staff, improve morale and ensure the effective running of a company.

This course is designed to assist managers to develop their leadership skills. Different leadership styles will be discussed as well as how to choose and develop ones own personal leadership style.
