Psychology for leadership is a course aimed at leaders, future leaders, and those in leadership development. We will take an in-depth look at current models of leadership, and discover that Psychology offers valuable insight into the key determinants of leadership success or failure. We will cover a range of topics including:

  • Are leaders born or made: can you equip people for leadership?- If so, what are the tools that they will need?
  • What are the essential characteristics that Leaders need, and crucially, what kinds of (leadership) characteristics mean that they are doomed to fail?
  • Diversity in leadership: how and why this improves business performance
  • What does it take to be a leader? Some tools for survival
  • Leadership development: how to identify psychometrics that will help
