What is leadership development?

Leadership development is a course or programme in place to develop employees to become managers or leaders. The training supports the development of skills required to effectively lead teams, manage business challenges and support company growth. Leadership development boosts employee engagement, closes the gap in the talent pipeline, improves communication, motivates employees and creates a healthier corporate culture. Great leaders have a positive impact on those around them so it is crucial to have leadership development training as part of their annual strategy.

Why should I do a leadership development program?

If you are a current leader or an aspiring leader it is critical to develop some core skills. These include effective communication, decision-making, time management, delegation, problem-solving, and relationship-building. By continuously upskilling your leadership qualities you positively affect a company’s growth, helping them remain competitive, and better understand the importance of your role. Some leadership competencies that you will develop include social and emotional intelligence, conflict management, interpersonal skills, decision-making, coaching, performance management, change management, and management of self, task and team.

Why is leadership development important?

A leader’s goal is to inspire commitment, reward achievement, lead their employees, strategic planning and manage change with resilience. Leaders must also develop their employees, creating opportunities for them to grow and be able to look within with honesty and practice self-awareness. It enables continuous improvement, supports leadership effectiveness and helps retain employees. Remember employees don’t leave a company, they leave a manager so it is so important to have highly skilled leaders driving your organisation’s success.
