Leading Through COVID-19

Meet the team that makes it all happen

Leading Through COVID-19 & Beyond

Equipping you with the skills to lead through the pandemic


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on our personal and professional lives, changing the way we think, how we engage with others, the environment that we live and work in and the way we approach our roles.

With so much to understand, accept and process, and with what is now being asked of us as individuals and as managers, we need to upskill ourselves to cope with what’s happening now – and prepare ourselves for the future.

This 1-day virtual workshop will provide you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to manage yourself, your workload, your emotions and your team during COVID-19 – and plan and prepare for what will be expected of you and how you will need to lead in a post-COVID-19 world.

This webinar is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management and is also CPD Certified.

  • Understand how the role of a manager and leader has changed and the impact of COVID-19 on this
  • Identify the importance of role modelling as a leader during and after the pandemic
  • Develop the modern day management skills required to be successful during and after COVID-19
  • Lead remote, virtual and agile teams during and after the pandemic
  • Develop yourself as an individual and as a leader in the new age
