Leading Self Towards Better Performance

To be able to lead others, you need first to know yourself

The speed, distractions and volatility of today’s business environments place our attention and resilience under constant pressure. Having a strong and clear focus with the ability to re-charge is becoming one of the most valuable resources for today’s business leaders.

Driving for results in this whirlwind of change makes it more important than ever for leaders to be self-aware and emotionally and socially intelligent. For most of us, this requires learning and adaptation that leads to personal renewal. To be able to lead others, you need first to know yourself.

According to Peter Drucker, “You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first”. This program will develop the personal skills necessary to lead yourself towards better performance and success, and the social skills needed to interact in a smarter and more mindful way and to lead improved organizational results.
