LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Leadership quotes and leadership books and manuals seem as numerous as leaders but as an aspiring leader what do you really need to know?

Our leadership courses for junior and aspiring leaders examine leadership theory and engage in experience-based discussion, but above all else they provide practical experience in leading tasks in an outdoor environment, building practically on appropriate theory.

This practical experience provides the basis for de-briefs and reviews where much of the real learning takes place. There are opportunities for everyone to benefit from the reviews and to apply this learning in another situation. Do - Review - Learn - Apply

They will understand their strengths and weaknesses and will both recognise and be able to apply their own leadership style effectively.
