Joint with the BCS Hampshire Branch, Southampton Solent University, BCSWomen SG, and the BCS Consultancy SG.

You may well hesitate to book yet another event on the subject of leadership; however, the ubiquity of the topic is surely proof that it’s something UK plc still needs to address. It remains a hot topic for the Chartered Institute of Management and the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development whilst the National School of Government sees it as a priority within government and the wider public sector.

In this 90-minute interactive session we’ll:

  • Develop your understanding of the building blocks of leadership
  • Develop your understanding of the attributes of a great leader
  • Differentiate between organisational climate and culture
  • Develop your understanding of organisational climate and the leader’s impact on it and look briefly at leadership styles
  • Embed your understanding during a Knowledge Cafe.
