Course Description

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

Ok so you're here. You've signed on the dotted line and made your commitment. Now where do you start? Let's work first on what others are looking for in you. The key behaviours and attitudes of an authentic style of leadership, and the impact on business results. What attributes make a leader great? Where should you build competency, and how you can do this through your personal character?

Your journey to leadership is about becoming a self-actualised individual who is aware of their strengths, limitations and emotions. This can only come when we commit to self-discovery, asking ourselves what we're about and how we can use that to help others be the best version of themselves. In doing this, they will see us for what we are – a person who others want to follow. We will also identify the fatal flaws that might completely derail your leadership journey, if you don't know to watch out for them.

Each lecture in this course has been carefully selected for you to explore how to implement relevant and meaningful strategies to support you as a leader now and in the future.
