Leader Training: Turning your passion
into productivity
If you are in a position where you are required to lead a team, good leader
training can give you the skills you need to perform excellently.
With people
depending on you, it is your obligation – your duty – to be the best leader that
you can be.
A good leader can inspire his or her team, create a culture of
productivity, of support, of true co-dependency on the unique skills of every
single team member.
But is a quick session of leader training all you need?
I often hear organisations talk about a spark.
Many people believe that leaders
are born diamonds – training
can help to polish their skills,
but the tendency to lead
effectively is something you
either have, or you don’t.
The
bad news is that the greatest
leaders all have a certain spark.

The good news is that it’s not
the spark you’re thinking of.

Leader Training: Do you have the spark of leadership?
Think about the stereotype of a leader.
He or she is naturally out

  • 1. Leader Training: Turning your passioninto productivityIf you are in a position where you are required to lead a team, good leadertraining can give you the skills you need to perform excellently. With peopledepending on you, it is your obligation – your duty – to be the best leader thatyou can be. A good leader can inspire his or her team, create a culture ofproductivity, of support, of true co-dependency on the unique skills of everysingle team member. But is a quick session of leader training all you need?I often hear organisations talk about a spark. Many people believe that leadersare born diamonds – trainingcan help to polish their skills,but the tendency to leadeffectively is something youeither have, or you don’t. Thebad news is that the greatestleaders all have a certain spark.The good news is that it’s notthe spark you’re thinking of.Leader Training: Do you have the spark of leadership?Think about the stereotype of a leader. He or she is naturally outgoing, evenextrovert, strong-willed and single-minded enough to instruct, inform and inspirea whole team of people. But think about somebody who doesn’t have any ofthese traits by default. They take a quiet, considered approach to working withtheir team, and often find themselves taking the back seat during meetings orgroup discussions.Do you respect one of these people more than the other? Which set of attributesmake for a better leader? Years of stereotyping tell us that the instinctive,dominant leader has all the personality traits of somebody with the spark.
  • 2. But the truth is that both of our imaginary characters are great leaders, respectedby their teams and valued by their organisation. They both have a spark, but notone that’s defined by personality or demeanour. They both have a desire to beextraordinary leaders and that’s the spark that counts. Their leadership styles areirrelevant and the best leader training takes this into account.Leader Training that challenges and changes peopleWhether you are a born-leader or a circumstantial one, your desire to be the bestis the only spark required. Leader training can nurture your ambition and passionto become a better leader, identifying the obstacles that stand in your way andhelping you to overcome them in a style that suits you. Whatever methods youchoose in Leadership, Leader Training can help you maximise their impact on yourteam.
