Future Leaders

Future Leaders

Whether you’re just starting out in your professional career or looking to take the next step up the career ladder, this course will help you build your confidence through a greater understanding of what’s needed from a leader in today’s workplace.

This course will draw on both academic concepts and own experiences to consider areas such as:

-       definitions of leadership
-       leadership styles
-       motivation
-       performance management
-       delegation
-       organisation structures

In addition, the course will encourage candidates to self-reflect on such topics as

-       resilience
-       personal brand
-       different communication styles
-       the ability to reflect on our actions and experiences
-       continued professional development (CPD)

A note from the course leader, Rachel Hughes;

“Students get so much more value out of interactive courses where, as well as learning what the research says, they are also asked to reflect on their own experiences. We will be using virtual meeting technology to ensure these perspectives are shared and discussed and get students thinking about what their own leadership journey might look like. As a result of this course, previous cohorts have reported higher confidence in both their knowledge of the topic and their knowledge of their own strengths. I hope you experience the same.”

What will you study 

The course is broken down into 16 different sessions, to include one assessed session. The materials are introduced in live 2 hour virtual workshops, with the opportunity for further study after each session. While there is the opportunity for workshops to be recorded, the expectation is that delegates will attempt to join all sessions and participate in the discussions.
