Leadership and communication skills training
The success of any organization depends directly on its employees and their leaders. Unfortunately, attention is often not paid to the development of people’s leadership skills, which is why the development of an organization is often hampered by managers at different levels of management. Much remains to be done because of these actions, as well as their omissions. Leaders often go wrong with simple management principles or do not know how to use the leadership techniques in a modern leader’s portfolio.
The work of managers is not easy. We are often unable to share problems or seek advice with others. Experimenting with different management techniques at work can also cost us dearly. After a long time, the relationship needs to be smoothed out. However, everything is possible in leadership training! Here you can discuss your problems and questions with others of your kind. You can also look at and analyze yourself from the sidelines and see in a video how we actually cope and make an impact. Participating in hands-on leadership training helps each leader analyze, improve, and stay in good leadership shape.

Methodology and Training Principles
Practical discussion and exchange of experiences are an integral part of the training. Practical techniques and the use of tools are reinforced by the knowledge gained through group work, practical exercises and examples.
If participants are ready, we are using video feedback during the development of behavioural skills.
This seminar is part of the Leadership Skills Development Program which is aimed to develop skills relevant to each leader.
However, the training can also be ordered as a separate training.
