Essentials of Leadership


During the foundation course, participants will develop an understanding of the importance of leadership at all levels (i.e., leadership capacity) within highly successful companies including an introspection of participant’s leadership styles. Participants will consider the differences between leadership and management and that leadership is critical in any successful change initiative. Participants will also examine the role that individual disposition plays in the development of leadership style, team interactions, and leader effectiveness. Ultimately this course focuses on helping participants identify the areas of their management style that are strengths and will support their transition into greater levels of responsibility and, perhaps more importantly, identify critical development areas that may hinder their future performance.

Strategic Tools for Managing Organizational Change
The McKinsey 7-S Model asserts that an effective organization is not necessarily the one that has the best strategies or skill set. Rather, it is the one that is most “in balance” where all seven S’s (strategy, structure, systems, style, staff, superordinate goals and skills) are directly related and supportive of each other. This framework which first appeared in Tom Peters’ and Robert Waterman’s book “In Search of Excellence” in the early 1980s, was adopted by the global management consultancy McKinsey & Company and has been accepted globally as an important tool for change management. Professionals charged with managing organizational change will learn how to effectively implement the 7-S model to make desired and lasting changes in their organization.
