The Leadership Development for Aviation Professionals course has been developed with the aim of addressing the obvious need for aviation professionals in leadership positions to be well-armed with the necessary skills that will assist them to progress their careers by developing more effective leadership ability through improved people skills.

This course will help you to effectively develop your leadership skills and help you to increase your chances of leadership success in aviation. The course explores the role of leadership along with the differences between leadership and management. Participants will learn about different leadership styles, develop influencing and delegation skills, and how to manage expectations. You will also be prepared on what to do when leadership goes wrong.

In the busy aviation business environment, it is not surprising that the ability to influence and delegate to others is seen as a core skill. It’s easy to understand why influential leaders are valued. These leaders get the job done and consistently deliver results. You will develop strong delegation and influencing skills applied in near real-life scenarios.

When it comes to performance development, participation within performance appraisals can be daunting for some staff. Often staff fear the whole process. As a result, you will receive training in this crucial business skill, for delivery across teams and individuals.
