This two-day workshop provides practical and useful leadership tools for experienced and new leaders that can be applied immediately to effect positive results at work. It introduces a clearly defined system of skills and methods that will enhance all forms of decision making, delegation, communication and motivation.


Facilitator: Robin Rawson

For many leaders the management of things can take us away from the leadership of people. Both are prerequisites to effectively executing business strategy and creating highly motivated teams that can consistently and willingly ‘do the job’.

Four Quadrant Leadership is based on the principles and practices of excellence in leadership and is founded on centuries of accumulated evidence from history, philosophy, science, ethics and other sources of knowledge and wisdom. When these principles are being constantly demonstrated, competent managers can become excellent leaders.

This is a comprehensive leadership system – to assist you in both recognising your capabilities as a leader and demonstrating those capabilities with clearly defined, proven, leadership practices.

Applying accelerated learning techniques, you will be actively engaged in syndicate discussion groups, a wide range of leadership scenarios, experiential exercises, case studies, self assessments/profiling and flip chart exercises.

This workshop also encourages and facilitates a high level of self reflection based on past performance and experiences and then focuses you on future hopes, dreams and expectations based on the new knowledge gained.

An extensive workshop manual folder is provided for notes and forms the framework of content for the two days. It comes complete with course exercises, ‘master’ documents, templates and key reference points for future use back on-the-job.

This workshop qualifies for NZTE's Capability Development Voucher Scheme.
