Programme: Training for Managers
Course: From manager to leader

Who is this course for?

This workshop would benefit those who would like to understand further the important distinction between manager and leader – and how to use a positive mindset to facilitate a positive culture in your teams. It will explore the importance of understanding – and communicating – your team’s role in facilitating the LSE to achieve its vision and strategy, reducing silos and ensuring collaboration where expedient. The course will also focus on developing your own vision for your teams and identifying key stakeholders that may assist you. Input will be given on themes relating to culture, change and leadership models as appropriate.  This course could be undertaken as a stand-alone day or attended after the more introductory Developing yourself as a Manager course.


This course will look at the attitude and mindset required when becoming a leader, and the key distinctions between a manager and leader. The importance of a positive mindset and a brief reminder (for those who attended the Developing Yourself as a Manager course) of the strengths-based model will be given before exploring the key leadership habits of effective leaders. Discussions will focus on understanding the impact of leadership style on team culture and climate and managing change, and exercises relating to creating your own leadership vision and stakeholder mapping will be undertaken.
