Leadership Development - Our approach
It goes without saying that good leadership is crucial to any successful business. But, what makes a good leader and how can someone develop their leadership potential if they are not one to begin with? The answer is that there are many factors that contribute to good leadership. And, whether someone is naturally a good leader or not, anyone can become a good leader.
There are many skills but we believe the key ones are these ...
Communication is one a key element of leadership. Good communication skills are critical in becoming a good leader or manager. During leadership communications you will be able to accurately convey your ideas and thoughts to those that work for you.
If employees have no idea what is on your mind, your leadership is going to falter. Employees are not typically mind readers.
Motivation is another key feature of good leadership. Employees tend to stagnate when motivation decreases…and it will decrease, without proper motivation. Many leaders try to motivate the old-fashioned way…through fear. (Do what I say or something bad will happen.)
This is not advisable, since it tends to only deliver short-term results and cause even less competent work in the long run, due to resentment resulting from the fear tactics.
Teamwork is always something to consider when striving to become a good leader. This means not only teaching your employees to work together but to become part of the team yourself.
Use others’ potential. Many times, employees’ potential is wasted. A good leader recognises that his or her employees are more than just employees, they are people too. These people have lives outside of work where they have to make decisions on a daily basis, from how to deal with house payments, to car bills, to raising children, to uncountable tasks in everyday lives.
A good leader doesn’t manage every single detail. Use others’ potential to your benefit. You will find that you have become a better leader for it.
Choosing the Right Leadership Development Training for you?Leadership covers a vast range of specific skill-sets. With that in mind, at Clemorton we know there are important considerations when choosing a good leadership development course for you.
We believe that leadership development workshops should let you practice skills the way you'll use them on the job. Novelty programmes may be fun but they don't leave you with much you can use when you get back to work.
Our leadership programmes have conceptual learning, assessment, and practice in the specific skill area. You learn the most at courses where you learn through exercises, rather than through lecture, and that is our goal. Practical advice tips and hints more than theory.
At many leadership workshops, the instructor will tell you what the traits of a great leader are. In our workshops, you'd work with others in the class to develop such traits. Then we will help you understand how your traits compare to the results of leadership research studies.
A good leadership development programme will provide you with something you can use when you get back to work. This is important because you'll never remember everything you learned at the training programme.
Our Leadership and Management Programmes, The Essential Management Skills Programme (EMSP) and the Dynamic Leadership Programme (DLP) are specifically designed to take in all that we have stated above and are ideal for anyone, or organisation serious about developing leadership skills.
