Learn to Become an Engaging Leader

Employee engagement continues to be a key challenge for organisations globally. Unfortunately, in Australia, the engagement levels are low for employees. They have been that way for a decade. We don’t seem to be winning the battle!

Core Leadership Training Strategies

There are a handful of boiler-plate leadership strategies that managers need to master in order to arrest waning employee engagement levels. There is no one magic silver bullet. Managers often struggle with the transition from being a ‘self-reliant doer’ to being a leader of others doing the work.

James’ leadership training helps managers see how they can ‘step up to leadership’, inspire their team and transform results.

“Content is highly relevant. However, the way in which was delivered sets this experience aside as a must-attend for all management.”

Peter Emslie

Senior Manager, The Aviator Group
