Become a TRUE Leader
Become a True Leader (BTL) is the core introduction to TRUE leadership in which we aim to help people understand leadership, have a model to use to develop their leadership capability, the opportunity to practise, and have feedback on their development journey with a personal development plan outlining specific changes that they can make going forwards to increase their leadership competence.
The aim is that participants commit to becoming a TRUE leader at the end of the workshop and we will support that journey.
The workshop is a combination of facilitated sessions focused on the leadership model – Whole Person Leadership, which uses the human body as an aide memoire to deliver great leadership and as a touch point for effective decision-making.
As an experiential event, each participant is given a leader’s role during a series of exercises and they are given feedback by their colleagues as well as the facilitators. A Healthcheck™ is carried out before the workshop and the results used as part of the final one-to-one feedback at the end of the workshop. This in turn is used to generate a Personal Leadership Development Plan. Further access to the Healthcheck is enabled in order to see the effects of the development.
In addition to the core model, a variety of leadership enablers can be introduced during this workshop depending on the client needs – these could be: project management, decision-taking, coaching and feedback, facilitation skills, meeting management, appraising people, delegation, teambuilding or others. These can be agreed on a ‘menu’ basis.
Beyond the core BTL workshop, TRUE Leader has the experience and facility to develop many other leadership skills.
BTL can be staged in a traditional setting (a hotel or training venue) as well as the Chatham Historic Dockyard or using the vehicle of a Clipper round-the-world yacht in the Solent.
