  • Just think about your own strengths and how you demonstrate these when you are the leader for others? Which chocolate – flavour, hard/soft centre, etc. Run the video whilst they think
  • We came up with this illustration of leadership – thinking about various experiences over the years and how people deal with the role day-to-day.
  • Here’s further details on the traits and characteristics for the varieties of leadership
  • Discuss people (without getting too personal) who you’ve experienced and worked for – or some people in the public spotlight – are they lovely, lazy, lordly or Lively – come up with suggestions for each
  • We don’t stick to one area in our leadership each day – we all fall into different areas dependent on the context, reactions of others, and our own approach to a situation – how much of your time do you spend in each zone?
  • Consider the traits and characteristics we need in good leaders, using your own reflections and experiences of work of social situations Also consider yourself and your own development needs – more on that shortly.
  • Developing leadership skills depends on context and characters – yours and others – there are many cogs and wheels in the process – these are some core ones
  • Its OK to be selfish sometimes – knowing what you need for your own support will help you to improve in many ways. Being self-aware and knowing your weaknesses and therefore areas where you will need support is all part of the learning. Developing your communication skills with key people in order to gain support effectively. Knowing which areas to focus on in developing yourself. Knowing what happens when you’re not around – will help too!
  • Its cold, its raining, it’s the middle-of-the-night and you’re stuck in Aberdeen with no money, just your phone. Who do you call?
  • Leave contact details for us to follow-up with further information, offers and mentors details.
