Developing Your Leadership

A two-day leadership programme for NECS managers.

The course will be made up of two facilitated workshop sessions for groups of participants. The workshops will be open to individuals who new to leadership roles or who would value opportunity to reflect on and improve their skills and effectiveness. The facilitator will provide models to guide individuals’ self-assessment on leadership roles, leadership styles and skills awareness. Peer-group interaction, discussion and personal goal planning will be utilised throughout to support individual’s development and behaviour change.
