Life Leadership - Weekend Away

Our Life Leadership Weekend Away is a fantastic opportunity to develop practical leadership skills through a combination of teaching and group exercises that are fun and insightful. Our coaching team will help you learn about yourself. You will be encouraged, inspired and challenged to grow with confidence and vision.

While our Weekend Away compliments and builds upon our Life Leadership Short Course, you can also attend the Weekend Away without completing our short course. The topics are accessible, and relevant for all.

You will learn:

Understanding Team Roles – using the Belbin® Team Roles framework, discover your strengths and weaknesses in a team and how to build a great team.

Crucial Conversations – they usually happen when the stakes are high and emotions are fragile. Learn techniques to handle them well and not avoid them.

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) – the degree to which you function effectively across cultural contexts. Vital for leaders who want to thrive in today’s world.

Ethics – how do we like to be treated? We want to be valued, appreciated and understood. We don’t want others to take advantage of us. Understanding ethics is important to anyone who wants to be a good leader.

Presentation Skills – presenting to an audience, regardless of its size, in a clear and engaging way is essential to good leadership. Learn presentation skills that turn “scary” to “fun” and give you the confidence to make your point.

The Friends International Life Leadership Programme is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (TILM). TILM are the "leaders in leadership", combining years of research, knowledge and innovation to champion the leadership agenda for all. Participation in the Friends International Life Leadership programme is a recognised pathway to individual membership with TILM.
