This online leadership training provides leaders with an opportunity to reflect on their leadership style and the adaptations they can make to suit the needs of their team.

Leadership is no longer about being directive or authoritative. The modern workforce requires leadership that is relationship based and shows interest in the development of its people. 

Most organiations set their sights on a strategy and devise a plan for a solid employee culture. Leaders have the important role of turning these aspirations into action by bringing their team along on the journey. This means involving their team in decision-making, listening to the needs of their people, and supporting their team to reach their potential.

Many leadership theories can help leaders to do these things. But at the end of the day, different people respond better to different styles of leadership. To be truly skilled, leaders need to understand the needs of their team and adapt their leadership style to get the best out of them.

This module provides an overview of leadership styles and the personal and working styles of the people in their team. This is an interactive module where learners will get a change to reflect on their leadership style and put some actions in place to improve the way their team works.
