Hotel Four Seasons, Kingston, Jamaica,
30th March - 1st April 2020

Action Centred Leadership

This Action Centred Leadership (ACL) programme is designed to develop the true leadership skills required by those who need to mobilise others to deliver exceptional results in their organisations.

That means it is designed to develop the leadership abilities needed to:

  • Build organisational visions, deliver transformational change, provide direction and inspire, motivate and support teams and individuals striving to deliver exceptional outcomes
  • Support the growth of individuals to enable them to fully utilise their talents to achieve personal ambitions and aspirations and find the right work/life balance
  • Develop organisational capabilities to produce high quality products and deliver exceptional services to create extraordinary experiences for customers and other stakeholders
  • Create a culture where people feel empowered and take great pride in their work
  • Connect people and facilitate teamwork where people respect each other and where relationships are critical to organisational success and personal wellbeing
  • Create an environment where challenges are turned into value-enhancing opportunities

The course is based on John Adair’s Action Centred Leadership model which is widely used across the world in all sectors of commerce, industry, emergency services, hospitals, armed forces, government departments and charitable organisations. Over more than 50 years, one million managers have been trained using ACL – and it’s more popular today than it has ever been.

Aim of the Course

The course will aim to develop:

  • An awareness of the three areas of overlapping needs present in all working groups: the needs of the common Task, the needs of the Team, and the needs of each Individual team member
  • An understanding of the leadership behaviours required to be an effective leader; the ability to recognise leadership behaviours when they are observed and the capability to determine what leadership behaviours are appropriate in any given situation
  • An opportunity, through assessment and feedback, to develop insights into current skills in order to create a pathway to becoming a more effective leader
  • A clear idea how new leadership skills may be applied in the workplace to improve team performance and deliver exceptional outcomes

Methods and Class Size

Presentations, case studies and a range of individual and group exercises are used to help you understand the role of leaders in modern, public and private organisations. In addition, you will develop insights into a number of personal skills, preferences, styles or behaviours.

Given the nature and approaches of this course, to achieve best learning result, this class will be capped at 18 participants in maximum.

About Your Expert ACL Trainer

Alan Power

 

Alan Power believes few people today show real leadership – there are many managers but there are very few genuine leaders. So how do you regard yourself; a leader or a manager? You might ask: ‘what’s the difference?’, and the answer is managers have subordinates, but leaders have followers! Which, of course, begs another question: ‘are you a leader or a follower?’. Reflect on how you do your job; did anyone do this job before you? If so, have you carried on doing it the same way as the previous incumbent, i.e. you followed, or have you radically changed the way the job was done to the benefit of all the stakeholders? If you have, maybe you are a leader.

But maybe this thinking is a little simplistic as it suggests that leaders and managers are a different breed when this is obviously not the case because sometimes we lead and sometimes we manage – in other words, people can be both leaders and managers and call upon their different skills whenever the situation demands. Throughout his career, Alan has been called upon to be both a leader and a manager so has a clear understanding of the requirements of both roles.

As a leader, Alan set up several new functions while employed in a major UK bank. For example, he set up the bank’s first training centre, became the youngest departmental head in the bank’s history, was the first manager to launch a Quality Management system and used Quality Management to set up a new mortgage company which won a national award for Quality Management, and he was the first manager in the bank to adopt the Balanced Scorecard.

As a management development and training professional, Alan qualified as a Leadership Trainer to deliver Action Centred Leadership in the 1970s and has delivered Leadership courses to countless delegates over the years and, with his personal experience as a leader, his programmes are enriched by his personal experience.

In 2003, Alan left the corporate world to set up his own consultancy specialising in Leadership, Operations Management, Business Excellence, Lean Thinking, Six Sigma and Customer Service Excellence.

This programme is designed for mid to senior-level managers with responsibility for the actions of a team or teams – in all sectors of the economy – who wish to improve the performance of their organisation, their team, and each individual member of their team.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the programme delegates will be able to:

  1. Define leadership, and contrast leadership and management
  2. Outline a range of leadership styles and demonstrate your own preferred style
  3. Demonstrate a full command of the three areas of overlapping needs that are present in all working groups
  4. Successfully use each element of the ACL model as an invaluable blueprint for leadership according to the situation
  5. Exemplify the behaviours of an effective leader – nurturing productive individuals and teams with improved quality output

Methods and Class Size

Presentations, case studies and a range of individual and group exercises are used to help you understand the role of leaders in modern, public and private organisations. In addition, you will develop insights into a number of personal skills, preferences, styles or behaviours.

Given the nature and approaches of this course, to achieve best learning result, this class will be capped at 18 participants in maximum.

Pre-Course Questionnaire

A pre-course questionnaire will be sent to you some days before the course through which you can raise your specific areas of interest. The course facilitator will review and analyze these in advance and address them during the course, seeking to satisfy your learning needs.
