Course Description

This course involves 6 learner hours inclusive of 2 live sessions over 2 weeks. Live sessions will be recorded for those who have time conflicts.

Self-awareness and self-management are the foundation of successful leaders. This course will focus on four core elements of self-management – emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, thinking strategies, and reflective practices. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of their skill levels in each of these areas, practical skills to use when they return to the workplace, and a self-management plan to take forward.

Course Outline

Participants will complete a pre-course activity: EQ (Emotional Intelligence) Assessment, or other leadership assessment based on consultation.

The assessments enable participants to establish a current benchmark, define their own leadership style and set a course for reaching their desired leadership identity, behaviours, attitudes, skills and competencies.

Participants will begin to put together their Individual Education Plan (IEP), which will serve as a road map for self-development in specific areas for growth, e.g. conflict resolution, strategic thinking, influence and persuasion.
