The Inspirational Leader

Online Leadership Programme For Managers 

How To Encourage Extraordinary Performance From People 

Move beyond command and control. People no longer want to be told what to do - they want to be engaged, they want to be inspired and they want you to assist them in reaching their goals. This course shows you how.


What You'll Learn

Bite-size, focused sessions make the learning super easy to digest and implement.

The course begins with three foundation sessions which give you a solid understanding of contemporary leadership. The program then coaches you through eight key strategies which will dramatically improve the performance of your team.

The introductory module answers the question 'What do leaders actually do?' and highlights the core strategy of the new leadership - make others feel capable, confident & strong.  You'll learn:

  • What Is The Work of Leadership?
  • The One Ability Above All Others That Sets Managers Above Their Peers
  • Why Would Anyone Want To Be Led By You?
  • Course Structure & The Big 4 Diagnostics

In Foundation Session One we investigate the 6 all important, building blocks of a modern leadership style - a style that enables you to get the very best from those around you. You'll learn:

  • How To Transform Your Communication Style Using Persuasion Not Power
  • How To Help People Give Their All By Aligning Organisation & Personal Goals
  • When You Let Go, They Grow - How To Delegate In An Inspirational Way  
  • Catch People Doing Something Right 
  • Regard Everyone As A Potential Winner - Expectations Communicate
  • How To Instill A Sense of Fun - It's A Great Business Lubricant 

In Foundation Session 2 we investigate motivation –  because without motivation the product doesn’t matter, the idea doesn’t matter because no one will take any action.

  • How To Differentiate Between Motivation & Manipulation. One works, the other ..... 
  • Law 1 - Be Motivated To Motivate. How To Access Your Ideal Performance State

In Foundation Session 3 we highlight the importance of having your own personal 'leadership development plan'. You'll learn: 

  • It Starts With You - How To Set Up Your Personal Leadership Programme

The course now moves up a gear and investigates the eight strategies essential to build a high performance workplace.

In Strategy 1 we look at the first action for any leader, set the direction, you must know where you are going if you expect others to join you on the journey,  This is relatively familiar stuff but to be effective your team must also buy in to the direction. If there is no buy in you get compliance, if there is buy in you get commitment, engagement and discretionary effort. You'll learn:

  • How To Set The Direction
  • What To Do If You Are At A Crossroads 
  • How To Get Buy In. THE all important step in unlocking discretionary effort 

In Strategy 2 we investigate the enormous, but often underrated importance of culture. You’ve probably heard Peter Drucker’s famous quote ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’. Culture determines the way we do things around here. Culture determines the way your people talk, think and behave. Creating a great culture is essential for effective leadership. You'll learn:

  • How To Develop The Right Culture For Your Team 
  • The 3 Steps You Must Take To Make Culture Change Happen 
  • How To Take Your Values Off The Wall And Bring Them Alive
  • How To Go One Step Further & Define Your Core Ideology 

Strategy 3 highlights the importance of leading by example. It's been said, that leadership is example, persuasion, and compulsion - in that order,  Organisations and teams tend to become shadows of their leaders. In time your team will become a shadow of you. You'll learn:

  • How To Be The Leader Others Want To Follow 
  • 4 Practical Ideas To Help You Lead By Example
  • How The Leader Should Handle Winning
  • How The Leader Should Handle A Project Shortfall / Failure - It Happens!

In Startegy 4 we revisit the core premise of the course - make others feel capable, confident and strong - because it's only when people feel that way that you're likely to get the best from them. What you say can either make someone’s day or ruin their day. You'll learn:

  • How To Implement Capable, Confident & Strong
  • How To Use The 'Gift' of Encouragement
  • How To Give Praise Correctly
  • How To Instill a Growth Mindset

The first thing anyone says about leading change is how easy it is to initiate and how hard it is to see it through. In Strategy 5 we begin by looking at how we react to change and then investigate a 6 step process for leading change in others. You'll learn:

  • How To Develop The Leader's Mindset Towards Change
  • How To Use The ROVCOS™ Model For Leading Change
  • Why It's Never A One Person Show

  • The 4 Most Engaging Words You Can Say To Anyone
  • How To Set Up A Process For Gaining Feedback
  • 5 Questions To Initiate A Learning Conversation

  • How To Foster Teamwork. The 2 Core Principles
  • 5 Actionable Ideas You Can Implement Immediately
