Leadership Skills Training

Leadership Skills Training increases the capacity of employees to be successful in leadership roles of any company. Senior management of companies usually enables execution of an organization’s strategy by leveraging the joint capability of the team.

What is Leadership

We are often asked the question, “Leadership Training and Development – What is it about?” The role of a leader starts with a thorough understanding of the team’s needs, aspirations and concerns, for which it is important to have excellent listening and facilitation skills. Most importantly, it starts with a thorough understanding and congruence of the value systems of all parties. Hence, this is an integral part of executive leadership training as it is of critical importance to have self-awareness to lead and manage other people.

Horseway Business Services is one of the leadership training companies in India that is highly respected for the work in the leadership space. The efficacy of our corporate leadership training can be attributed to the intense company-specific customization that is done for the program. Of equal importance is the need to conduct pre-training and post-training assessments that measure the improvement of the participants. Programs that do not measure the improvement of the participants can lack the potency, as the participants are aware of the lack of accountability. Hence, two critical elements of our leadership training programs are the customization and assessments. At HBS (Horseway Business Services), we are committed to ensuring that these two elements are present in all our leadership programs.

Leadership Competencies

Independent studies undertaken by the leading consulting and business houses on an ongoing basis has revealed the following top qualities and skills of leadership that are imperative today:

  • Inspiring commitment
  • Being a quick learner
  • Respecting individual differences
  • Being culturally adaptive
  • Compassion and sensitivity
  • Self-Awareness
  • Participative management
  • Managing Change
  • Resourcefulness
  • Strategic Management
  • Leading People
  • Motivator

There is ample evidence in the news and in recent articles that even some of the best and most venerable organizations are failing to adapt to change, implement their strategic plans successfully, or prepare for a more uncertain future. This deficiency is ultimately rooted in inadequate leadership development in organizations. We believe the turmoil we are currently observing has something to do with ineffective global leadership competencies, and that if we don’t change our current approach to corporate leadership training, we will see even more of the same.

It is imperative for leaders to stay aware of current trends influencing their organization, their industry, and their employees. This article, The 5 Biggest Leadership Trends to Watch in 2019, identifies the 5 key leadership traits of a leader as follows:

  • Ability to lead a workforce comprising of various generations
  • Accept women in senior positions
  • Constantly rework the concept of timeliness
  • Fearlessly holding people accountable
  • Being on a path of continuous education

This situation can easily be solved by corporate leadership training programs that support the development of desirable leadership competencies and ensure that there is a preparedness for movement in the organization.
