Being a leader today is challenging. The demands produced by environmental uncertainty and volatility are enormous. Leaders are asked to do more with less; find creative solutions; be agile, flexible and collaborative; lead change; achieve tough targets; develop and monitor KPIs for themselves and their teams; be sensitive to the needs of multiple stakeholders; develop and implement strategies; manage conflict; build high-performing teams as well as a host of other requirements. Surviving and prospering in this climate means that leaders need to be able to think clearly, to prioritise efficiently, to interact productively and to be proactive rather than reactive.
The Diploma in Leadership Development is about helping participants to become better leaders, whatever their leadership role is. It is about understanding how they themselves contribute to their eventual success and that of their team and organisation.
