Leadership and management training is an essential organisation task. Derek Stockley provides a guide to the key features of either a leadership training or management training program.

Leadership development is important for every organisation. Each organisation exists for a purpose. Well run organisations clearly articulate their mission and strategy. Leaders are needed to guide employees and members to achieve the objectives and direction set.
Leadership training can be formal or informal.
Formal programs include training courses, business games and "outdoor" activities.
Informal education includes coaching, mentoring, relevant experience and involvement in community activities.
Consequently, the training design has to carefully consider the content of the course, but perhaps more importantly, the context that participants operate within. The course has to be needs based, specifically researched and created for the training group.
Leadership relates to the ability to motivate and guide others in a specific direction. Management encompasses leadership but also includes the traditional tasks of planning, organising, controlling and communicating.
Like leadership training, management training can also be formal or informal.
Formal programs include training courses, business games, case studies, management education programs at universities, e-learning packages and the like.
Informal education includes coaching, mentoring, and relevant experience including secondments, job exchanges and the like.
A variety of approaches can be used to design training that meets the diversity of training needs described above.
Course lengths can vary. The training can be intensive or spread over a period of time. It may consist of half-day, one day or longer sessions. Sometimes, a course with a residential component is useful.
As an example. I conduct a leadership program (short course). For details see: Leaders Skills. It is designed to improve team leader skills.
Individual training programs can be designed and conducted around such themes as:
- Leadership/Team leadership training
- Managing People
- Change Management/Service Management training
- Advanced Training - General Topics eg Communication Skills
We can design and develop a training program specifically related to your organisation’s needs.
For example, Leadership and team development in-house training course outlines a leadership development training program that also included management team development.
Companies and other organisations with five or more to be trained can request further information and a quotation through the in-house training request page or learn more about in-house training at: in-house training explanation.
