Code: PCC/21/576 Intro to Leadership Skills

Leadership in the complex and fast changing modern workplace has become about unlocking the power and potential of people to achieve organisational goals. The old command and control, Taylorist management paradigm is no longer fit-for-purpose.

Anyone can become a leader by adapting their current specialist skill set and developing new skills and behaviours. This virtual workshop on Microsoft Teams explores leadership skills, on the assumption that leadership starts with self and identifying what it is that drives you and could inspire others to follow you.
