CPD Course: The Fundamentals of Leadership

The Fundamentals of Leadership

Great leadership is rather like an onion – it’s formed of layers! On the outside, a leader needs to be flexible to adapt to changing circumstances and individual team members’ needs, But, peeling back the layers, you’ll find there are a few fundamental leadership practices and roles that are vital to any leader’s success – including your own! These are the core foundations on which your leadership stands or fails.

In this course, we will review the fundamental practices and roles of a great leader, together with the practical ways in which you can develop them.

Provides 16 hours of CPD

What you’ll learn:

  • The roles and responsibilities of a leader that you need to adopt to ensure you gain your team’s trust and support
  • The key skills you need to be an effective leader, including emotional intelligence and the ability to drive idea generation, with practical tips for developing them
  • How you can use coaching, mentoring and leading by example to help your team members to flourish and take on leadership responsibilities of their own
