Company management


The term “leadership” itself can refer to a range of skills that help managers in their entirety to manage not only smaller or larger teams, but also entire projects and companies. Although leadership is intangible, a good manager can have a demonstrable impact on the team’s ability to perform and on the functioning of the entire company. Some managers have the right leadership in them and can be said to be natural leaders, but there is a larger proportion who do not have these skills innately and will therefore appreciate courses that help them develop these skills.

Today’s organisations need leaders who can communicate a clear vision and strategy, drive change and maintain an innovative and high performing culture. Whether you’re a new manager or an experienced leader, either way you’ll gain greater skills, confidence and expertise that will take you a step further as a leader.

In this course, you will work primarily on your personality, your actions and your communication to develop creative and original methods of developing and working with people.

What you will learn in the course

Organisational leadership strategies and models

In an increasingly competitive global environment, quality is no longer considered a nice-to-have luxury. It is a prerequisite for successful competition and market survival. While the concepts, tools and practices for quality and process improvement are now widely accepted and firmly established in a large number of high-performing organizations around the world, this has not always been the case. The importance of quality in organizations has gone through a complete evolutionary cycle.
You will therefore learn to develop service quality measures and standards, design processes that improve employee learning and performance, and evaluate different approaches to process improvement. Using the tools you will learn in this course, you will be able to link strategic decisions to their impact on organizational performance.

Team management

Today, adaptation and rapid response are key to an organization's success. With increasing demands, organizations must leverage teams to achieve strategic goals and fulfill initiatives. Based on the knowledge gained, students will diagnose team needs, set expectations for development, use conflict to foster change, and build team autonomy to support leaders in adopting a more strategic focus.

Strategic decision making

The ability to make effective and timely decisions is a critical skill for successful leaders. Mastering this skill impacts all aspects of day-to-day operations and strategic planning. You will hone your decision-making skills using a methodology based on proven activities and sound organizational approaches and leave better equipped to confidently tackle any decision, large or small.

Motivating people to perform better

Managers are responsible for motivating their employees to perform at their highest level.  Most leaders recognize that motivation is a key driver of high performance. However, few leaders are skilled at choosing the right mix of approaches and tools to motivate all of their people. This course prepares leaders to analyze performance problems and assess whether they are truly attributable to a lack of motivation or to one of several other root causes.

Soft skills and leadership

Coaching is all about building relationships - and that's essential for your organisation to move forward together and achieve better results. Being an effective coach requires skills that can be practiced and learned, including listening, building credibility and trustworthiness, and showing empathy. In this course, you will identify the five functions of coaching and the rules for conducting coaching conversations. Finally, you will explore some classic mistakes people often make in coaching and discover how you can avoid repeating these mistakes yourself.
