Just being a good manager is not enough these days.
You need to lead, inspire and motivate

Let’s be honest, most of us leaders and managers are in our positions because we have proven our technical ability whether it is being an engineer, a teacher or a nurse. To be in these roles we will have achieved an accredited qualification e.g Post Grad Diploma in Education or a Degree in Nursing, but what about our leadership and management role?

What accredited qualification do we have within Leadership and Management? In this fierce competitive market just being a good leader is not enough, so if you want that promotion and enhance your career, then read on. You have found the solution.

Over 90,000 Leaders and Managers each year have enhanced their skills and knowledge and successfully achieved an ILM qualification

Getting the right mix of inspirational leadership and effective management skills and practices can have a significant impact on your own performance and your organisational performance in terms of profit, sales, growth and survival

It is for this reason that the programme has been designed to include units that will further enhance your abilities as a Leader and Manager and to give you the confidence to adopt and implement proven management/leadership practices and techniques. The course is flexible to allow you to select and study only the units that you feel are most relevant and they are available to you to study wherever you like, at a time to suit you as long as you have internet connection!

We will cover such topics as:

Leading innovation and change – You will analyse the difference between Innovation and Change, and establish the importance of change management in current practices. You will identify how change and innovation is created linking to organisational strategy, and you will identify a change/innovative idea to be implemented in your own area of responsibility – managing the process from start to finish

Assessing leadership capability – You will assess and analyse the leadership practices and techniques adopted by your management and yourself. This will link closely to leadership and management theory, and will include recommendations for improvement in order to motivate and communicate effectively with your teams.

Principles of coaching and mentoring – You will learn about the methods of Coaching and Mentoring, identifying the differences between each. You will analyse the benefits of these methods within leadership and management, whilst considering the barriers that a manager/leader may face

Managing individual development – You will learn about performance gap analysis linking to organisational strategy, and identify how the development of individuals within your team should link to strategy. You will then analyse gaps in performance and develop a plan that will minimise any gaps identified and ensure that objectives are achieved.

The lessons provided are professional but are also quite personable – you feel like you are in the classroom with the tutor. 

Being able to choose the units that I want to study is fantastic, as I can select the areas that I feel I need to develop further and I love how I feel that I am in control of what I learn.
