Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

What is leadership – When providing any training course on leadership skills, it’s tempting to assume that your audience will already possess certain types of knowledge or skills. In our experience, to do this can be a mistake. And, of course, you don’t want to waste people’s time.

However, offering an excellent course that genuinely offers something new — and not merely a “Hey, look at my training content,” is critical to explore the role of leadership skills.

The big winners emerging from this space are those that will explore the role of leadership skills. And, the more you share your experiences, the higher the engagement you will generate.

Use the material to discuss the characteristics and behaviors of effective leaders. And, invite your audience to share their experiences, the challenges they have, and their opportunities for learning to encourage discussion.

Leadership and management – Here’s something else we want to show you. Your audience will want to emerge with as many leadership skills as possible. And, to clear up any expectations you should use the content to redefine the differences between leadership and management. This is important as many people can mix-up the two roles.

Leadership styles – This question of leadership styles is not new, but it can be difficult to communicate. Start this section by examining leadership styles, including transactional, transformational, and traditional leaders.

The content will allow you to explore negotiating and charismatic leadership. For best results, use the content to share insights on the Leadership Style Continuum.

Additional leadership styles – Most leaders define themselves based on “what they do” and not “who they are.” One of the best ways to improve the awareness levels of your audience is to outline a range of other leadership styles that exist. In particular, use the course material to explore McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y.

During this section, we suggest that you share your perspectives on leadership styles. This form of storytelling will make the content more meaningful to your audience. To put it simply, help your audience get the maximum benefit from the material presented.

Forces and leadership style – Many new leaders get told that if they lead their teams well, that they do well within companies. And, many leaders indeed do very well. Yet, some so many leaders work hard but still face challenges in the workplace.

Why does this happen?

Let’s briefly look at some of the content that you can share with your audience.

First, let’s consider competency skills and commitment.

In any team, both competenceand commitment and commitment will exist. Help your audience to understand that in team situations, the leader will need to adopt a leadership style that takes these levels into account.

For example, in cases where there is Low Competence/High Commitment – the leadership style must be directing and provide structure, control, and supervision. In contrast, in High Competence/High Commitment situations – the leader can delegate and pass the responsibility on to the team members. As a result, leaders will be seen as competent if they can match their leadership style to the competence and commitment level present within a team.

Second, the fast-paced nature of today’s business world can lead to many conflict situations that leaders will need to be able to unpick. Use the content provided to discuss the importance of conflict management skills, how to influence others, and the need to manage expectations.

While the expanding academic knowledgebase provides a wealth of sources of information for leaders, it brings challenges for leaders that want practical skills. One of the best ways to improve the capabilities of your audience is to use the content to discuss lateral leadership. To illustrate, asking team members to contribute their views, perspectives, and thoughts, offering your opinions, beliefs, and insights, and doing something constructive with your team are all parts of lateral leadership.

When you can help your audience to shift from seeing leadership as “a position they hold” to “everything that they do,” you will see a dramatic change in how they approach leading a team. A smart way to achieve this is to use the content provided to introduce a five-step process for lateral leadership.

When leadership goes wrong – In the end, there’s no single magic wand that will deliver excellent leadership skills for your audience. But there are lots of things that we can learn even when leadership skills are less than adequate. For example, when some individuals hear the words “Leadership Goes Wrong,” it can make them worry that they too will make mistakes. This feeling is natural and is justified. But that’s also why you should use the content to explore how leadership can go wrong. It will prepare your audience for various situations.

How to answer common questions

What makes an effective leader?

So how do you become an effective leader? Building leadership mastery can be a long journey. But, here are three factors that shape the development of effective leaders.

  • Traits or characteristics they exhibit
  • Behaviors that they show
  • Situations they find themselves in

What are the three main types of leadership styles?

Many new leaders struggle to find the leadership style that will best serve them as leaders. Here are the three primary forms of leadership that they can adopt.

  1. Traditional Leader
  2. Negotiating Leader
  3. Charismatic Leader

How can a leader influence others?

The leader’s job often includes having to change the attitudes and behaviors of those that they need to follow them. In general, this can be achieved by:

  • Giving praise and honest appreciation when it is due
  • Calling people’s attention to mistakes - but indirectly
  • Talking about your own mistakes before criticizing another person
  • Asking questions instead of direct orders
  • Letting the other person save face
  • Praise improvement
  • Give the person a reputation to live up to
  • Using encouragement to make any fault seem easy to fix
  • Make the other person happy about doing as you suggest

Can I edit the content and add my company logo?

Yes. You can now add your logo and customize the course content freely using Microsoft Word and Powerpoint. You can also deliver the course materials where, when, and as often as needed.
