How much energy do we put into enabling colleagues to develop and grow? Do we tend towards a command and control management approach, or do we act as leader-coaches who invest in enhancing the autonomy and development of others? Do we consider ourselves as credible reference points for the teams and individuals we guide?
In this course, we will consider together how to look after those who work with us, in order to stimulate their growth and help them to improve their performance. We'll see which style characterises leaders and managers capable of "bringing out the best" in their colleagues, by reflecting on trust, dialogue and listening. We'll focus on the importance of leadership by example for building trust and inspiring credibility in those who work with us.
