Course Title : Effective Leadership Program (ELP) 

Leadership and People Management Training Course Singapore

The 3-day Effective Leadership Program (ELP)  is our flagship leadership training course for managers and executives in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region. It is underpinned by our philosophy that the growth of an organisation is directly proportional to the growth of its leadership team.

Leadership is a lifelong process of continuous improvements and change. Upwardly mobile managers and team leaders face interesting challenges as they try to master their role as a leader of other people. Leadership skills and people management skills training are critical to their career success. Great leaders take time out to pause and reflect on what they do and think about how to do better.

In today’s fast changing and competitive business environment, it takes too much time for a smart manager to learn how to be an effective leader through trial and error. He has to shorten his learning curve, create momentum and secure quick wins to establish his credibility.

Organised around key leadership principles and a 5-pillar management framework of managing self, managing team, managing individuals, managing relationship networks and managing upwards, the Effective Leadership Program (ELP) is the best 3-day leadership training course in Singapore for new managers and team leaders. With the most comprehensive curriculum and tools, the ELP will equip them for leadership success and shape the way they think, behave and execute. Participants will gain confidence and a new perspective as they learn how to lead and manage others to achieve success. All this for less than the price of a business class ticket for a regional business trip.

This high-impact, world-class leadership training course in Singapore is ideal for highly-motivated first-level managers and team leaders who would like to explore and synergise their intelligence quotient(IQ), emotional intelligence(EQ), adversity quotient(AQ) and cultural quotient (CQ) to boost their leadership development. The specially-designed curriculum will instill a new mindset and help participants to understand the manager’s job and responsibilities, diagnose their current situation and build skills and capabilities for their new role by understanding and embracing key management concepts and tools. The program modules have been field-tested for relevance and practicality in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Russia and Africa over the past 19 years. For maximum impact, the program uses a mix of theory, discussion and experiential learning.

During this intensive leadership training program, participants will learn how to : set direction and align the team, use different leadership styles, motivate and influence others, use conflict management skills, develop team members and delegate effectively, provide feedback & coaching, build trust & credibility, leverage cultural diversity and manage key stakeholders.

This leadership training course will be highly interactive and inspiring. Participants will learn in a peer environment through discussions of practice-based ideas and team exercises focusing on real workplace scenarios and global best practices in the leadership and management. The 3-day course will be facilitated by one of the top leadership trainers in Asia. Past participants have rated this training course as “engaging and insightful” and “one of the best Asian-context leadership training courses”
