Learning the art of leadership
People are not all born with the ability to lead. Different personal traits and characteristics can help or hinder a person’s leadership effectiveness and require formalised programs for developing leadership competencies. Yet everyone can develop their leadership effectiveness. Achieving such development takes focus, practice and persistence more akin to learning a musical instrument than reading a book. It is unrealistic to expect your leaders to lead on their strength of personality alone. Even the most experienced leader can benefit from leadership development training.
If you’re frustrated by your leadership team’s lack of progress, even though they seem to get along, it’s time for you to deploy a DST people High Performance Leadership program, which provides:
- A focus for both individual leaders
- and leadership teams
- Customised content, designed and delivered by CEOs and business leaders
- Customer need focused facilitation methods, including workshops, intensive training and one on one coaching
