Most important skills for leadership courses

As workplaces across all industries rapidly change, developing leadership skills has become crucial to individuals’ ongoing success. Regardless of whether you’re in a leadership role, leading a project or managing direct reports, developing both soft and hard leadership skills will equip you to successfully navigate and solve various workplace scenarios. And if you’re wondering what’s the difference is between learning soft and hard skills, soft skills can be described as how someone is shaped at work, how they perform or their traits, and hard skills relate to technical knowledge based on your role.

To break these down in the leadership industry, to upskill and advance your career as a leader we’d suggest exploring building skills in communication such as active listening, empathy, team building, coaching and mentoring, creativity, giving and receiving feedback, decision making and problem-solving, and flexibility. For more technical leadership skills explore innovation and strategy, finance and commercial acumen, marketing and sales, change management and personal leadership.

How leadership training courses work

Leadership development courses are designed in a variety of ways to assist individuals and teams. Leadership courses can be targeted to develop people based capabilities or more generalised skills can be achieved by attending business leadership training. Either way, leadership courses generally consist of a series of skills in a modualised approach targeting a specific skill level of a leader, where participants can learn the theory of the course, whether this be a set of principles or a robust framework, apply their learnings in a simulation process and end the workshop with a feedback or review session.

Benefits of leadership development training

Leadership development training is not only important, it significantly benefits both the individual and organisation. There is a famous saying in this space, CFO asks CEO: “What happens if we invest in developing our people and then they leave us?” CEO: “ What happens if we don’t, and they stay?”. Investing in training will reduce retention, promote a high performance culture and provide strong role clarity. Arming your leaders to be the most effective problem-solvers and decisive decision makers will make businesses more money.

Results you might see

Leadership development training provides a range of results. Most importantly, when you engage in leadership training programs that target high demand skills, your trained leadership skills will provide you with adding more value to an organisation, progressing your career quickly, gaining a higher income role, finding new business opportunities and unravelling complex organisation challenges and feeling confident to lead with innovation.
