Leadership starts with self-development and participants will closely examine how they show up as leaders and develop their own powerful leadership brand and vision. This is the essential workshop for anyone who is new to Leadership, or who wants to gain a better understanding of contemporary Leadership practices.

Activities are interactive, non threatening and give ample opportunity to identify opportunities for application in their own workplace. True to the WunderTraining style - high visual content - to ensure maximum engagement. This is the essential platform to bring out the true Leader and guarantees Aha moments! An energising course guaranteed to have lasting impact.

We commence with reflecting on todays workplace and research based reasons why people follow. Authentic leadership is here to stay as character is a strong foundation for building trusting 1:1 connections. We unpack positive communication where affirmative and supportive language replaces negative and critical language and learn components of this key skill development area.

We simplify practical areas like giving and receiving feedback and delegating effectively. We discover research based strategies to grow a positive climate through cultivating compassion, forgiveness and gratitude, coupled with strength based coaching conversations.
Change and challenge is forever present in our shifting work environment we focus constructively on the skills required to work through conflict and new chapters with vitality.
