Course Description

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

Why does goal setting have to happen? Can't you just work hard and reap the rewards that come from that? Without goals, how will you even know that you are successful? Setting goals is not only important, but also essential to developing your skills as a leader.

So how do you set a goal and make it stick? And what is a good goal? Knowing this can be the key to unlocking the success of your leadership for the long term. Being able to set a path and stick to it, having the perseverance to make it work, and then recognising when you have found success are all the things great leaders are made of.

Developing effective networking techniques is also a crucial part of planning for your future. You don't have to be the 'life of the party' but you do need to learn to be effective in your networking activities, how to avoid 'time-wasting', and how to take advantage of every day opportunities to build and maintain your network.

Career planning is the ongoing process of managing your professional development to achieve your career objectives. It's about knowing yourself and how others benefit from your skills, as well as building professional relationships that you can leverage in meaningful ways.

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.
