The biggest challenge for any leader is the people factor. A successful outcome these days depends on a leaders ability to get people to follow them, not because they have to, but because they want to.
The Leadership Foundation course takes delegates through a number of themes that are essential for effective leadership. It covers working with and leading the individual, leading a team and how this interacts with the individual, what the individual and team needs to succeed and the skills and tools to do this.
Leadership involves change and change is an ever increasing aspect of everyday life. The structure of the BlackDog Leadership Foundation course is based on the cycle of change. If you strip the cycle of change back to fundamentals it’s essentially an ancient format which films, books, adverts and people follow in the form of a story. There is a challenge, an acceptance of the challenge, preparation to face the challenge, a journey though the unknown and back to home. BlackDog uses the structure of the story circle and ties to it the skills and knowledge the leader needs at each stage to be successful.
