Leadership and People Management Training Course Singapore

Executive Certificate in Leadership and Management by Raffles Leadership Centre

LIVE!  Face-to-face class at Regent Hotel Singapore

The 2-day Effective Leadership Program (ELP) is our flagship leadership training course for new leaders and managers in Singapore and Asia. It is underpinned by our philosophy that the best leaders are the (a) product of nature and nurture and (b) the right foundational leadership training -and this comprehensive integrated training program offers the best practical leadership training content for new leaders and managers in Singapore, bar none.

Leadership is a lifelong process of continuous improvements and change. Upwardly mobile managers and team leaders face myriad 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. In our work globally, we have had the opportunity to observe and document leadership best practices across cultures and industries.

Organised around key leadership principles and the Five Pillar Framework of (1) Managing Self, (2) Managing Team,  (3) Managing Individuals,  (4) Managing Networks and  (5) Managing Boss, the Effective Leadership Program (ELP) is probably the best comprehensive integrated 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 professional success. All this for less than the price of a business class ticket for a regional business trip – the experience of the business class flight will expire but not the knowledge and skills learned from the ELP, which will last a lifetime.

This high-impact, world-class leadership training course in Singapore blends conceptual learning and experiential learning and is ideal for highly-motivated first-level managers and team leaders who would like to explore and optimise their intelligence quotient(IQ), emotional intelligence(EQ) and adversity quotient(AQ) 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 20 years. For maximum impact, the program uses a mix of theory, group discussion, experiential learning and great venue.

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, inspire employee commitment and manage key stakeholders.

This leadership training course will be highly interactive, practical 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 ELP will be facilitated by one of the top leadership trainers in Singapore and Asia- Pacific region. Past participants have rated this training course as “engaging and insightful” and “one of the best Asian-context leadership training courses”
