The Ingage Leadership Development Programme Overview
Session 1 – Programme Start Up (Vision, Mission & Values)
This module will be used to help you understand the programme in detail and enable us to identify individual specific needs. This module will focus on the importance of organisational vision, mission & values, what the organisation stands for, what it is trying to achieve and how you contribute towards this
Session 2 – Managing Yourself
Managing yourself is the most important start point. If you can’t manage yourself then it is more difficult to manage others. The module is based on the completion of a personality questionnaire which enables each individual to understand why they do the things they do and why they find other people either easy or difficult to get on with. Tools are then introduced to help the delegates deal with different situations.
Session 3 – Managing Others
The learning from the previous module can be used directly by you to enhance how you manage and influence other people. This module links this with established management understanding about how to motivate people and creating respect from the workforce.
Session 4 – Managing Your Time
Effective time management is arguably the best kept secret of business success. It greatly increases your work capacity and is a clear sign to others that you are an achiever.
Session 5 – Successfully Managing the Stress of Change
Leaders need to know how to recognise, intervene and, where possible, prevent employee stress. Different people show stress in different ways, so what is a stressful reaction to one person is the norm for another
Session 6 – Performance Feedback and Problem-Solving
Getting and giving performance feedback is like going to the dentist. Everybody dreads it, even if laughing gas is used.
Understanding is the key to effective communication. Analysis is the key to effective problem solving. To solve problems in teams a leader must integrate effective communication techniques with models for problem analysis.
Session 7 – Situational Leadership
This session is all about adapting your leadership style to each unique situation or task to meet the needs of the team or team members. Ken Blanchard and Paul Hersey developed the Situational Leadership® Theory in 1969. They believe that there is no “one size fits all” leadership style.
Session 8 – Attitude & Mindset
During this session you will look at how you are viewing the world and the impact it has on all aspects of leadership. Furthermore, it provides you with the skills to influence the attitude and mindset of their staff
Session 9 – Strategic & Operational Planning
In this session we will look at the differences between strategic and operational planning and identify ways in which to create these plans to align with the organisational Vision, Mission & Values. As a leader you will be required to participate in planning for your department, teams and overall organisation. Having the skills to shift between strategic planning and operational planning is so important in the changing world we live in.
Session 10 – Reflection & Implementation
This session will be used to review and reflect on the whole programme. During this session you will review and reflect on the whole programme. This will be done via evidence from you and feedback from your line manager and staff. This module will also identify other outstanding areas of development need.
As you can see, this programme is packed with content which develops your skills as a leader.
We deliver this programme, tailored to your needs, either as a management group or alternatively you can attend as an individual and still gain the same value.
