Description

INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND

Leadership is one of those things that's often awfully hard to define but you know when you see it, and you definitely know when it's missing. You may have some people who now have to 'step up to the plate' and take on far more of a leadership role than previously. You may need them to demonstrate the kind of leadership behaviours that others aspire to.

Leadership skills training is becoming increasingly sought after by both individuals and companies. One major reason is that while new managers may generally be very good at their jobs, they are sometimes lacking certain leadership expertise. In many cases, those promoted from within their own companies have not had formal training in years and are not versed in the latest leadership and management techniques. Strong, up-to-date leadership skills training can fill in the gaps, resulting in a more effective manager for the company, and also an array of professional and personal benefits for the individual:

  • Career advancement opportunities
  • Greater respect from superiors and peers
  • Increased self-confidence
  • The ability to lead and inspire others
  • Superior communication skills

With all these advantages, it's no surprise that leadership skills training has grown into a $12 billion industry, according to Training Magazine.
