The Principles of Leadership will equip learners with a much desired and transferrable skill of effective leadership that is highly regarded in a modern workplace. Soft skills are as central to the smooth functioning of an organisation as that of specialist skills. While individuals are expected to be experts in certain areas and sectors, more attention is being payed to soft skills, with leading organisations encouraging a perfect combination of both to help you carry out your tasks effectively and maintain a high standard of performance.

The programme is extensive and will cover key modules such as styles of leadership, coaching models, types of organisational culture, equality and diversity and change management. Each module is discussed thoroughly to ensure learners gain an in-depth understanding of the subject matter.

The Principles of Leadership is highly beneficial to individuals working in leadership positions and managerial roles and will get you acquainted with understanding your leadership style and adjusting to a leadership style. Getting qualified will further improve your opportunities of career progression, and having this certification on your resume will demonstrate to employers that you have expanded your soft skills and expertise in this area. You will gain an in-depth knowledge of transferable skills and personal behaviours and why gaining them makes you a marketable candidate to potential enterprises. It will help you contribute to the overall success of an organisation.
