360° leadership


You will learn how effective leaders balance four constructive styles to generate and maintain high performance amongst those that work with and for them. You will understand your own leadership style and how to fine tune it in order to become a highly effective leader.



This three-day seminar takes participants on a voyage of discovery through their own leadership styles, the styles and results they generate in small work-groups and teams and the type of cultural climate they build in the departments and organizations they manage. Using the latest Human Synergistics® technologies, they discover not only their positive and negative impacts on those around them, but also how to diagnose the styles of others and how best to influence their colleagues, subordinates and superiors. Finally, they make an action plan to continue improving after the seminar.
