Mode of delivery

Leadership is fundamental to effective and efficient diplomacy. The success of international leaders rely upon their capacities to take initiative, lead others in and through challenging circumstances, and thus maximize opportunities and strengthen the positions, objectives and achievements of parties and groups.

Event objectives

This training will enhance participants' understanding and appreciation of the definition of leadership and the qualities of a strong leader, the differing styles of leadership particular to different cultural contexts, the importance and practice of effective communication skills, techniques and strategies to practice strong leadership in times of crisis, in the process of decision making as well as in risk management.

More specifically, at the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • By applying leadership theories in practice, gain a clear idea of your leadership style through self- awareness of your strengths and how you can best build on these;
  • Develop cross-functional leadership skills and styles to move into leadership positions;
  • Identify and break through self-perceived limits, connection to your passionate and authentic self;
  • Think strategically and entrepreneurially and identify opportunities in the operating environment.

The methodology used for the training is very much based on the idea of “practical learning”. The sessions will be highly participative in nature, combining power point presentations, exercises, case studies and group discussions.
