Emerging Leaders

If you want to create change and make your mark as a leader, the most important place to begin is with yourself. If you get yourself right first, others are more likely to follow your example.

The emerging leader’s role can often be one of the most difficult roles in the organisation because they are at the ‘coal-face’, having to deal with the real issues that occur, on a daily basis.
Over the years, the role of frontline leadership has changed significantly, from being top down and autocratic, to a team leader, coach and motivator. Therefore it’s important that new leaders gain the right skills early on.

"I highly recommend this course. I learnt so much during the 2 days. There was lots of "food for thought" but for a great team to work your foundation (or brick wall) has to be solid so you can build upwards."
