With leadership, as with many things in life, experience is the best teacher. Most leaders learn what to do by trying it themselves or by watching others. The problem is that not all of what’s done or observed is appropriate.
It’s also important to understand that leadership is not a personality, it’s the behaviours they exhibit on a daily basis. An observable set of skills and abilities. So it’s important for you to base your leadership practices on proven leadership behaviours that are easily modelled as it will point you in the right direction when stepping up your skills as a leader.
Once those behaviours have been permanently engrained in a leader, even as organisations try to meet the demands of complex, global markets that seems to be constantly changing, they will always be in possession an intangible set of knowledge that keeps them flexible to changes, find opportunities in the status quo, foster collaboration and inspire others.
Leader’s Track will use a combination of mini lectures, games and extensive outdoor activities.
Designed for anyone who wants to increase their awareness of leadership and its characteristics, to improve their personal and organizational leadership skills, and to build their self-confidence as a leader.

Leadership has, in fact, made something of a comeback as the management buzzword of our time, a panacea for combating increased competition, tighter budgets, proliferating technology and smaller labor pools – the four horsemen of our contemporary business world.
No, leadership is nothing new.
What is new is a heightened awareness that there are ways to elicit superior leadership skills in almost anyone. The key to organizational effectiveness in the future will be unlocking the hidden leadership potential of all employees.
Leaders’ track explores five fundamental tracks of extraordinary leaders. These tracks are not only examined from the leader’s perspective, but also from the seldom-explored perspective of followers. The tracks are easily learned practices and behaviors which managers and executives can adopt to improve their leadership skills.
