Exploring the essential elements of leadership using a hand-on practical approach.
Thursday, 10 April 2014 saw the first Leadership for Management Success course taking place at the Institutes head offices in Chilwell.
The session was the first of its kind for IQ, providing supplemental value and benefit to the existing membership offerings as it continues to adapt to the distinctive and individual needs of its members.
Conducted by Ian Thompson (Procentus Consulting Ltd), a leading management and leadership development consultant and Fellow of the Institute of Quarrying. Ian has trained internationally for global organisations bringing with him over 30 years of practical experience in senior leadership roles in the quarrying, concrete and asphalt industry.
The one-day programme explored the essential elements of leadership using a hands-on practical approach. Providing an understanding of what needs to be undertaken to inject the fundamental elements into managerial roles. Areas such as the Chimp Paradox, approaches to leadership and communication techniques for leadership impact were explored and discussed during the course of the day.
The robust learning experience and reflection on leadership development strategies was supplemented by 6 hours of accredited CPD from the Institute. Summed up by one of the delegates as “a very well organized and well structured course, interactive with a variety of media and delivery.”
