Course Description

Come on a journey to increase your leadership skills. How to balance your leadership style with Learoy Tonight will provide you with the skills and knowledge to become a great leader, for yourself and your team.

Often, people believe leadership is the lofty height you arrive at when you are given a specific position or job title. In reality, it takes more than a title on the door to inspire a team to support you. True leadership is the ability to influence people to achieve consistently high levels of performance in a business.

Our team members are all going to be different, and their tasks are all going to be different. Sometimes our natural approach may work, but at other times we need to be more situational, providing our teams with the type of support they need in the moment.
