“The leadership coaching activity enabled the management groups to develop their personal resilience when dealing with challenging situations and ‘historical, old groove’ conversations. Through the coaching programme, leaders and managers developed a greater sensitivity to the situations where defined conversations were necessary and consciously employed a greater skill in delivering these conversations.”
Key features of the Leadership Programme
We deliver the training based on our Leadership Model designed to incorporate how leaders think and feel, what they do and how they inspire their teams.
A series of coaching interactions focused on individual needs, aspirations and context.
Delegates practice in the workplace and are required to reflect and provide evidence.
ASSESSMENT & ACCREDITATION
Evidence provided by delegates is externally assessed and accredited through Cardiff Universitys’ Lean Competency System.
Who I Am – explores personality types and differences using tools such as Myers-Briggs, Emotional Intelligence and Colourworks. We examine how delegates speak, listen and the impact this has on others. We encourage delegates to consider time management and their own self-development.
My Team – focuses on coaching and change management as key skills of an inspiring leader. We use Situational Leadership (Blanchard) to understand how leaders adapt their style to match the development needs of their team. We consider learning styles and how they impact training and facilitation.
What I Do – examines what leaders are expected to deliver both in terms of results, desired culture and ideal behaviours. We consider essential organisational processes and standards. We promote leader standard work to develop a sustainable culture of improvement.
The content and components of the course are further developed through one-to-one coaching interactions, action learning groups, feedback and self-reflection.
