The course explains what makes a good leader, how certain skills can be developed to help be a good leader, and how these skills can be implemented into any given situation.
The course is split into two sections:
This section covers what leadership is not which helps you to define what leadership might look like.
Leadership is not about having all the answers but a good leader will recognise this truth and bring the right people together to find the answer through discussion.
Leadership is not about the power and authority the role may bring. A good leader is able to act from a place of empathy and is able to convince others without abusing their power and authority.
Good leadership is not management. It is all about attitude, behaviour and people skills. A manager tells you want to do whereas a leader shows you what to do.
Good leadership is not about the leader, they perform a largely selfless role and work to improve lives for others by empowering them, and enabling people to dream, grow, flourish and succeed.
Good leadership is not rare, anyone of us can be a leader, as we all possess leadership skills within us. The trick is to embrace the leader already within us. All of our skill sets are different, there is not a particular skill set that defines a leader but good leaders do envision change, implement plans, treat people with kindness and motivate and empower others to help make their vision a reality.
This section also introduces you to the different types of leadership styles such as authoritarian, democratic, delegative, transactional and transformative. The best leaders are able to adapt their style to suit the situation and the team of people they're currently leading.
This section finishes with a question about the different styles of leadership to ensure your understanding of the content.
