Effective leadership brings about results and commitment.


Leadership is important in today's competitive world because it is a key differentiator – effective leadership brings about results, commitment and organizational knowledge. Yet most of us are thrust into leadership positions without an idea of what it takes to be a leader.

This one day workshop is an introduction to the key essentials of what it takes to be a leader. It covers the spectrum of scenarios and roles which leaders will face, and introduces core skills for direct leadership – to engage, influence and motivate team members.

Based on 26 years of on-the-ground leadership experience, the workshop is hands-on to what works, what doesn't.

• Three key pillars of good leadership.

• Roles of a leader.

• Ways to sharpen the leader’s listening skills.

• The TRUST Equation.

• Anatomy of difficult conversations.

• Methods and tools to engage, influence and motivate team members.


The workshop is practice-oriented and involves fun and engaging experiential learning.

Participants will share their individual experiences, from which methodologies and tools will be introduced for targeted intervention:
