Leadership and Management Development

Leadership:

  • To Lead:
    Cause to go with by guiding or showing the way; direct the actions or opinions of others;
  • Leader:
    A person followed by others
  • The Leadership Paradox:
    Leading a team often means giving up power rather than accumulating it - the core issue for managing teams.

Traditional leadership skills of control, focus, responsibility, motivation, all help achieve business goals.

A leader that can encourage independent thinking, innovation and team member accountability, will be more able to face the challenges of the modern business.

Leaders can be developed, and are not just born into leadership.
