Leadership and Influence

$29

Leadership through influence is as much an art as it is a skill. While they say some leaders are born and not made, many circumstances can drive someone to take the lead, perhaps even in adversity, discovering abilities they never knew they had. Once you learn the techniques of leadership and influence and add your own authenticity, it will be easy to build the confidence to take to lead. The more experience you have in acting as a leader, the easier it becomes.

Study and answer questions at your convenience and at the end of the course, if you answer more than 80% of the questions correctly, qualify for a certificate of achievement.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

Anyone who is in management.

Prior knowledge

Understand hiring and basic HR principles and most of all have understood and know how to create and keep teams focused and onside.

As you develop your career, there will be a constant requirement to not only refresh and update existing technical learning but also to develop new skills and ways of thinking and behaving.

Technical Skills

Whether you’re in production, distribution, sales, finance, human resources or management your technical skills will always need to keep up with the latest developments in technology and change. The learning for this will generally come from your peers, industry trends and specialised training.

New skills

However, as you move up in seniority through an organisation or become and entrepreneur, you will be faced with learning a much wider array of skills. You will need to learn how to be a generalist but with the ability to look at the whole of a business and how it all interlocks.

People Skills

Most importantly, you will need to master your own behaviours and character and emotional intelligence in order to influence, inspire and bring people along with your vision.

Your career, personal and professional development should never stop, whether you are learning because of a company or professional body requirement or whether you are just wanting to grow.
