AWARE Management Development Programme


Date & Time:


Stepping out to lead with influence

AWARE is a modular online training programme designed for managers and emerging leaders, who are aspiring to be the best they can be and want practical learning which gets to the heart of organisational issues today.

Today, there is a need to adopt a positive leadership framework, distinguishing between what it takes to be a good manager, and a great leader. A leader has a set of core behaviours, which inspire and motivate individuals and teams. Fostering this sense of self-awareness and a communicative approach means that managing teams is a positive experience for all. This programme provides a learning platform to develop, reflect and embed these behaviours and solutions. It is a programme to inspire leaders to be their best selves, not just in their roles but as individuals. Middle Managers leading teams
will benefit most from this programme, however the adaptability of the content will also make this suitable for other levels of management too.
