The art of leadership

Live webinar

Maintaining affordable rents, building new and maintaining existing housing stock and a relentless focus on health and safety are just a few of the many challenges facing our sector. All this against a backdrop of reducing budgets and the inevitable need to do more with less. Things are tough. So inspiring the best performance from your people is critical.

This workshop explores the fundamental principles of being a great leader building your personal leadership style and raising your awareness of what can hinder your performance; establishing an understanding of how your leadership profile can support or hinder the performance of your team; and connects your leadership style with challenges at work so that you can practise being at your best under pressure.

Only 30 places available so book now.
