Course Structure
1. The Problem and the Solution

The career changing and life changing power of effective leadership. An introduction to leaders and leadership, who they are and who they aren’t; how it’s done, and how it isn’t.

2. The Leader’s Journey

Leadership is difficult, but not complicated. By liberating leaders from the bullsh*t that surrounds the subject, we begin to understand the fundamental building blocks of effective leadership.

3. The Leadership Equation

Revealing the two most important words a leader must remember, and the relationship between them as expressed in the ‘leadership equation’.

4. To Decide is to Act

Great leaders are effective decision makers, yet many in leadership positions are not. Taking decisions is how you build confidence, take control and get things done.

5. Culture: The Leader’s Superpower

Culture is the environment the leader creates in order for their teams to out-perform. In all organisations the culture is the defining experience of those within it, yet many leaders are ignorant about what it is and how to change it.

6. Creating Culture

Culture is not soft and delicate; it sets like concrete. You must take hard physical action to change it and be continually vigilant to maintain its potency.

7. Being Followed

Attracting, retaining and inspiring the best people: along with building an effective culture, there is no more important task than this.

8. Leading Yourself

Leadership demands an abundance of energy and resilience. Recognising and managing this is essential to leadership longevity. Remaining a successful leader requires that you have ‘you’ on your to-do list.
