Leadership & Management

Broadly speaking, leadership programmes have become run of the mill in recent years. This is something H-Training is striving to disrupt. In any competitive workplace, your ‘edge’ is the advantage you have over the competition. We can support you to reach higher with a high-impact leadership programme that pushes students to achieve more, become resilient and develop the skills of a high performing leader.

With over 30-years -experience in a range of corporate and public sector settings, the H-Training team have a unique and broad ranging insight into what it takes to make a career in leadership. We have honed our expertise to successfully foresee developments in business and navigate the ever increasing opportunities there are for trusted leaders who bring people with them. This programme will challenge you to reflect on your experience of leadership and to identify leadership styles, while most importantly applying them to your everyday management practice.

The aim and objectives of the H-Training Leadership & Management Programme is to bring participants through a learning experience based on reflection in their current role, producing an in-depth awareness of their own innate ability as a leader. They then develop the skills and techniques to enable them to lead in their role, delivering results through an engaged and progressive team.
