Leadership Training Workshop, Positive, Authentic and Contemporary Leadership Development Workshop. Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Hobart, Darwin, Australia Wide

Leadership starts with self-development and participants will closely examine how they show up as leaders and develop their own powerful leadership brand and vision. This is an essential workshop for anyone who is new to Leadership, or who wants to gain a better understanding of contemporary Leadership practices.

Activities are interactive, non-threatening and give ample opportunity to identify opportunities for application in their own workplace. True to the WunderTraining style - high visual content - to ensure maximum engagement. This is the essential platform to bring out the true Leader and guarantees Aha moments! An energising course guaranteed to have a lasting impact.

We commence with reflecting on today's workplace and research-based reasons why people follow. Authentic leadership is here to stay as character is a strong foundation for building trust and 1:1 connection. We unpack positive communication where affirmative and supportive language replaces negative and critical language and learn components of this key skill development area.

We simplify practical areas like giving and receiving feedback and delegating effectively with positive intent. We discover research-based strategies to grow a positive climate through cultivating compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude, coupled with strength-based coaching conversations.
Change and challenge is forever present in our shifting work environment, we focus constructively on the skills required to work through conflict and new chapters with vitality.

Participants will be better able to:
• Recognise and develop their leadership role within the organisation.
