Leadership Development


The success of organisations depends on leadership - leadership that creates strategy and direction, enables and guides implementation and finds and develops the right people.

Recent research shows that the abilities and characteristics relevant to leadership can be strengthened and even created through access to the right sort of knowledge, insight and skill development. The success of APA Training & Development programs in collaborating with leaders across multiple organisations has resulted in a challenging program with components that will benefit those in leadership positions across diverse sectors.

Program elements can include:

  • What makes an effective leader?
  • Core characteristics of leadership
  • Applied leadership – organisational culture and context
  • Leadership and management – practical links in business
  • Leadership and communication
  • Leadership and change management
  • Networking - Applied internal and external organisational essentials
  • Influence and Negotiation
  • Leading Change – planning for the future
  • Supporting the culture of change (internal and external)
  • Communication through change
  • Bringing it all together – vision, people and relationships
  • Feedback – the foundation of excellent performance
  • Leading with performance management
  • Challenging underperformance – strategic solutions
  • Problem solving and conflict tactics

All the elements above can also be applied in the Executive Coaching program. APA Training also provides a number of key organisations with targeted Women in Leadership programs.
