Step 1

Step 1

Leading Individuals

A transformative programme that develops the mindset and skills for a whole new leadership

Overview

Our flagship programme exploring an empowering leadership mindset and way of being. Experience breakthroughs in your development through practising true-to-life conversations, and receiving transformative feedback and coaching.

Who is this for?

This is for you if you want to develop as a leader, whatever your level of experience. It works just as well if you are a Project Manager, CEO or senior leader, Scrum Master, HR professional, people manager, or work in a self-organising team with no managers.

What to expect?

Tough training in the mindset and abilities needed for more self-managing employees and teams, coupled with plenty of transformative feedback and coaching. And breakthrough results!

What NOT to expect!

Theoretical training or ‘edutainment.’

Time commitment

The online programme consists of 6 modules spread over 10 weeks. Each module is an afternoon (13:00-17:00 CET) and a subsequent morning (9:00-12:00 CET), including breaks.

The in-person programme consists of four days’ practical training with a break (usually one month) in between days 3 and 4. Each training day is from 9:00-17:00, including lunch and breaks. There are some short home assignments to do in between, mostly conversation practice.

Outcomes

Outcomes you can expect from taking part in our programme are:

For You

Practice in the core abilities needed to have a leadership mindset and way of being that is more empowering, more coaching

Increased confidence in having ‘difficult conversations’ in a way that empowers others

New awareness of your leadership strengths and pitfalls through incisive feedback and coaching

For Your Organisation

How to be a catalyst for your employees/colleagues taking more responsibility and ownership for the business

How to avoid defaulting to solving problems, giving advice, and being solely responsible so others can step into their power.

How to have effective feedback conversations that lead to real development shifts

It’s hard to shift from predictable machinery to new ways and Tuff Leadership Training helps at the most challenging level for this: individually.

Distinguishing the ‘soft side’, how being ‘tough’ can be such an act of kindness; a framework to be more intentional about the conversations I have.

What we will cover

The training is practical and is designed to develop the leadership mindset and skills needed to unleash responsibility and commitment in your teams.

Old patterns and behaviours will be challenged, and you will become aware of your pitfalls and strengths. Real-life role-plays combined with individualised, powerful feedback mean that you will find new and better ways to deal with the challenges you are facing.

The overall theme is a coaching leadership approach, which is translated into different kinds of conversations such as feedback, coaching and relationship conversations. You will get a variety of new tools that you can apply right away. The methodology used is Tuff Leadership Training’s own, which has been developed for more than twenty years and is known for producing tangible results.
