Leadership for new managers


Many people find themselves leading teams and wondering what the ‘magic ingredient’ is to make them work together effectively. Good leadership creates strong teams. This programme will help you develop leadership skills that you can in many different situations.

Leadership is not a process or a series of actions. It is a mindset and an attitude. Leadership is found in many places and in many people.

For someone who is in a job role where they have to lead a group of people to achieve targets for the organisation, they are now a leader and a manager. There are aspects where leadership and management occupy the same space but they are different types of skill.
