This workshop explores the difference between management and leadership. All leaders need to manage at some time, but to move from management to leadership requires deliberate steps.  Understanding and recognising what differentiates management from leadership is key to growing your leadership and knowing which of those two roles you are, or should be performing at any given time. 

This workshop is for any finance or other business professional who has responsibility for, or relies on a team, in the course of their role and who wishes to lead their team positively and authentically.

Prior to attending this workshop, you will need to complete a pre-work reflection (30 minutes) which will be issued to you a week prior.

This workshop will consist of discussion, exercises and self-reflection, to assist you in:

  • understanding the difference between management and leadership
  • recognising your own leadership style
  • improving your self-awareness
  • using storytelling in a leadership context
  • understanding the power of culture
  • drafting a personalised Leadership Blueprint to guide your next steps
