How to be an effective leader

What can you expect?
Our personality style influences how we work with others and influences our leadership style and ability, this session will focus on helping you identify your personality so you can communicate more effectively, build respect and trust.

About the speaker
I am an infectiously happy, engaging, award-winning inspirational trainer, coach and mentor with 19 years of experience, working with people to improve their confidence and career prospects and am known for my ability to enable self - belief and confidence, through engaging interactions and practical advice.
We all bring something into the world, but for so many reasons, some of us fail to recognise this. To me, training and coaching is more than just teaching skills and improving knowledge. It is about:
- supporting and encouraging
- creating opportunities, and
- improving self-awareness,
so that individuals can find their natural rhythm in life and live a life well-lived.

If people are happy in their careers, then they are better partners, parents and friends.
