Introduction to the course

This KC Academy training course challenges dated ideas and preconceptions of traditional leadership. You will be guided and coached to maximise your own and your team’s creative potential through innovative and transformational models and techniques. The days of heroic management belong in the past; it is an era of development, involvement, and staff empowerment. The modern-day leader needs an entirely new tool kit to ensure their department flourishes in this highly competitive work environment.

The emphases of this exciting and thought-provoking training course are communication, flexibility, versatility, vision, involvement and creative thinking. You will be encouraged to think outside the box, expand your comfort zone, challenge, and embrace new ideas and concepts. You will also be taught the crucial methodology of identifying possible pitfalls, traditions and conflicts that could prevent you from transferring your newly acquired skills to the workplace.

This training course will highlight:

  • Opportunities for innovative styles of thinking
  • Profiling tools to identify people’s differing personality types

A crucial part of the learning process is sharing the differing work and life experiences participants bring to the table. It offers an opportunity to experiment with novel and sometimes challenging techniques within a safe and creative environment.
