Anyone in a position of leadership would benefit from the training provided by these course materials. If someone has to harness the skills and energy of other people to achieve a common goal then this course is for them.
The leadership skills training course materials will benefit participants that need to enhance or develop their leadership skills. They will suit people that are relatively new to leadership or are in need of a fresh perspective to their leadership role. The content is a perfect follow-up to our nuts and bolts leadership course, ‘Leading Effective Teams’ although they can be used as a standalone course too.
