Transformational Leadership

Reimagining the workforce. Leading for Renewal.

Developed in collaboration with some of the sector’s most respected leaders, the training is made up of e-learning, webinars and practical activities to be completed outside of the training. 

The future of your workforce begins with effective leadership

We need to recognise the difference between leaders and managers, keeping in mind that with the right training, an individual can develop as both. Although there have been pockets of good practice in terms of transformational leadership and whole system approach training, there was no single training pathway. One which provides people with these skills at the appropriate level and in the context of our sector. 

That is until now – introducing the Transformational Leadership Programme which has been designed to equip people with the confidence to innovate and explore, share learning and seek to better understand the need from the communities perspectives. Having completed this training, they will be inspired and empowered to lead their teams to effect positive change in their local areas and contribute to a healthier more active society. 

Modules

The Transformational Leadership course is made up of 5 unique modules, each designed to develop your teams knowledge, skills and understanding of effective leadership. Covering off culture, leadership behaviours, collaboration and organisational development, and more…

Module 1: Principles of Leadership​

We start with the notion of leadership. We establish that it is not about the leader themself but about creating an environment for others to flourish. We develop some principles of leadership including the importance of emotional intelligence and resilience. We establish why leadership is different to management and begin to explore some useful leadership behaviours.​

Module 2: Creating Culture​

We develop this concept further in the context of organisational dynamics and creating a people-centric culture that explores vision, values, behaviours and belief systems, and how the power of culture can provide business and the organisational advantage.​

Module 3: Understanding the Sector Landscape​

The development of a fuller appreciation of leadership is limited unless there is practical context within which it can be applied, and so we then explore the rich depth and breadth of the sport and physical activity eco-system. We also discover that it is increasingly likely to converge with other sectors of health, social care and education and we learn that health inequalities are a product of a systemic infrastructure.​

Module 4: Whole System Thinking​

For sport and physical activity to have a positive effect upon the health of our communities, it needs to do so in the context of collaborating more deeply with other parts of the system. We discover what systems are and how they behave, and we explore systems thinking and systems leadership, appreciating that effectiveness in the future will be about distributed leadership and the ability to collaborate and influence.​

Module 5: Leading for Renewal​

We develop this concept further in the context of organisational dynamics and creating a people-centric culture that explores vision, values, behaviours and belief systems, and how the power of culture can provide business and the organisational advantage.​
