Leadership Skills (Approved by CPD)

CPD & ILM Approved

Course Description

A leader doesn’t necessarily have to be a ‘manager’, but it’s difficult to see how a manager could be
truly effective without having at least some leadership skills.

This course starts by introducing the basics of leadership and explores where the concept originated
from. It then goes on to discuss various leadership theories, including situational leadership,
contingency theories, transactional and transformational leadership and more. It then moves on to
discuss developing teams including and team members by looking at the role leaders play in this.

The final two modules cover the role communication plays in effective leadership and finishes off
with a module about moving forward together to achieve a shared vision.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at supervisors and managers that want to develop more effective relationships
with members of their teams. The course can be a great starting point for people new to their
leadership role as well as more established managers that want to enhance their skills. This acts as a
great introduction to the subject.

This course can be sold to individuals who are doing the training for themselves or it can be pitched
to businesses who might want to put all of their first line management team through the training, so
they are all work in the same way and have the same skill set.

developing themselves.

A strong leader will motivate their team, improving morale and efficiency and ensure that their team
