Training Summary

The Authentic Leader Development Programme will provide you with the necessary knowledge and tools to better understand your personal and career aspirations and show how these can be combined to unlock peak performance.

You will also develop understanding on what drives behaviours, your preferred communication styles, and the professional impact that these factors can have. With Behavioural Preference Profiling C-Me, you can develop an understanding of your own unique leadership style.

This is ideal for practicing people managers or team leading and supervisory rising stars who could be given additional responsibilities.

To help you bridge the gap in your organisation, we’ve teamed up with Springboard Consultancy to launch a new Authentic Leadership programme; Authentic Leader Introduction.

Introduction to Authentic Leader

Skilled, empathetic, authentic leadership is essential for propelling your organisation through challenging times.

In fact, research shows that the behaviours characterised by authentic leadership are now more relevant than ever.

  • 81% of professionals expect some form of negative impact from the COVID-19 pandemic
  • 73% of UK professionals say their company’s leadership has struggled to adapt during the pandemic
  • Professionals cited that training in soft skills, such as empowering teams or empathy, could impact motivation and performance

For this Authentic Leader training programme you will cover three core modules to create a solid foundation and understanding of Authentic Leader fundamentals, and then have the freedom additional modules to tailor the programme to suit your needs. The modules are as follows;

Core Modules

It also allows for greater in-depth discussions and explorations of certain topics that are meaningful to the organisation.
