In our work conducting leadership development, we notice a number of things. Firstly, leaders love to learn and we love to work with them on their leadership journey as they do this learning.
We also notice that leaders we work with respond well when we challenge them to reach for things that they haven't yet achieved. This might be to articulate a fresh vision with their team, to renew relationships that are failing, or to set higher expectations of those who fall short of the organisation's values and standards.
There are also critical points in each leader's journey where support is vital. Our leadership training helps leaders at these difficult times as they navigate particular challenges. We provide coaching, encouragement and insights which assists them to move ahead.
This programme offers fundamental learning about what it is to be a leader. We recommend this to front line leaders or people taking up a leadership role for the first time. This leadership training programme is designed for people who have had little or no formal learning in leadership skills.
“This training was delivered logically with application to my work
place and has remained with me. The little things were done very well, particularly the structure of the workshop days to keep us alert and not just absorbing the information, practising and embedding it too. I can see clear improvement from myself gaining mutual success in the last 8 weeks alone. I will continually draw on my learning from this programme in my career.”
This is a multi-faceted leadership development programme that extends over 4 months. It is tailored to produce leaders who have acquired a deep knowledge of what it means to lead over the long haul.
“By the end of the 4 months your new set of leadership tools is very much a part of your day to day work.”
Alaine Parry, Customer Services Manager, World Vision New Zealand
