Whatever the economy the most stretching and exciting part of your job is to lead, engage, motivate and inspire your team. This masterclass shows you how.

In Strategy 1 we look at the first action for any leader, set the direction, you must know where you are going if you expect others to join you on the journey, This is relatively familiar stuff but to be effective your team must also buy in to the direction. If there is no buy in you get compliance, if there is buy in you get commitment, engagement and discretionary effort. You’ll learn:

How To Set The Direction
What To Do If You Are At A Crossroads

In Strategy 2 we investigate the enormous, but often underrated importance of culture. You’ve probably heard Peter Drucker’s famous quote ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’.

You’ll learn:

How To Implement Capable, Confident & Strong
How To Use The ‘Gift’ of Encouragement
How To Give Praise Correctly

How To Develop The Leader’s Mindset Towards Change
How To Use The ROVCOS™ Model For Leading Change
