Why Choose this Training Course?
“There’s nothing so practical as a good theory,” said Kurt Lewin, the founder of social psychology. However, when it comes to Leadership, the number of theories appears endless. Why is this the case?
The most common reasons range from different opinions about leadership, different descriptions about leadership and perhaps the most significant, the fact that leadership is constantly evolving. Leadership is not an exacting science; no two situations will be the same across a multitude of circumstances. It is very reason why it is essential that today’s leaders can draw upon the example and experience of those who have gone before them. The ability to cut & paste different theories or different pieces of theory helps to identify which approach might lead to better results and which pieces to leave out.
Many theories have common aspects that can be mixed and matched to suit changing leadership challenges. Leadership practitioners need always be aware that the content of one theory may well have been successful in one industry and at one time and with one type of leader: but the world has changed and so they need to find what is useful, test that approached, and adapt it to fit the needs of their professional circumstances.
Consequently, this 5-day training course Building my Leadership Philosophy provides an inclusive synopsis of the best and most commonly applied leadership theories.
