Understanding the Senior Manager Role

Who should attend?

This course is for managers who want to assess their leadership abilities and explore some realistic options to improve their performance.  Pitched at level 5, this course is a core unit of the ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership & Management and is aimed at existing or aspiring middle/senior managers.

Why should you attend?

Multidimensional leaders understand that great leadership requires a range of competencies and skills, including becoming more self-aware and emotionally intelligent.

From crafting a vision, building alignment and championing execution, to utilising a range of leadership and communications styles, this short course is unashamedly all about you.  It offers you a chance to explore the concept of leadership in detail, your responsibilities and, most importantly, where you need to focus to improve.

The mantra of this course is: Don’t be a one-dimensional leader.

During this course you will learn to:

  • Evaluate your own leadership styles & learn to adapt to situations and people
  • Use theories of emotional intelligence to gauge the effect on performance
  • Create a vision, build alignment and champion execution
  • Motivate, delegate and empower others to improved performance


For those seeking recognition for their learning, this course is based on the ILM unit: Becoming an Effective Leader. Successful completion of the assignment will result in the achievement in 5 credits at Level 5.

Course outcomes
