Short Courses

The role of a leader has changed drastically over the last few decades. Leaders are now not only seen as delegators of work, but are also looked upon for inspiration, motivation and determination. A good leader is one who can attain and sustain a competitive advantage in every aspect of the business, whether it is financially or even through the personnel a business employs. This training course expands on what makes an effective leader and how to become an effective leader, it takes a more focused approach on leadership, i.e. the ‘essentials’ required for success.

Course Glimpse

Reward Management

One of the biggest cruxes of all motivational theories is ‘reward’. Businesses as a whole usually understand the ‘motivation’ part and will conduct team building exercises, arrange for motivational talks and so on and so forth but will often forget the core, which is the reward! This training course elaborates more on what kind of rewards a business can give to its employees based on their performance while also accounting for the costs of these rewards and keeping them under manageable levels.

Dealing With Resistance

Developing a business is all about making decisions, from the time you get into the office to the time you leave, every decision that is made impacts how the business moves forward, however, sometimes the decision you make which you think would help in the long-term doesn’t necessarily bode well with the employees of the business as it would cause them issues in the short-term- this course equips participants with the knowledge of how to deal with the resistance to change and guide the business through this difficult hour and ultimately emerge victorious!
