LEADERSHIP ESSENTIALS – ELEVATE

Leadership training helps you feel prepared for where you are already headed

FOR MONICA SAMY, STEPPING UP INTO A LEADERSHIP ROLE WHILST BEING THE YOUNGEST IN THE TEAM WAS A LITTLE DAUNTING. THAT’S WHY SHE SOUGHT OUT FURTHER LEADERSHIP TRAINING AND FOUND WHAT SHE WAS LOOKING FOR IN IMNZ’S LEADERSHIP ESSENTIALS COURSE.

Why did you decide to study with IMNZ?

Monica is the youngest in her team, and while she’s doing great and moving into the leadership space, she struggled with confrontation and how to approach difficult conversations with colleagues. She knew she needed further education to feel confident as a leader.

“I knew IMNZ was a recognised organisation in training and found exactly what I was looking for with IMNZ’s Leadership Essentials.”

How did learning with IMNZ help you overcome those
challenges you were faced with?

Monica found that Leadership Essentials provided further education on how to work across teams using a range of models to pull from. “I came out with a better understanding of what type of leader I want to be, my core values and how best to utilise my skills in the future.” And now, Monica is feeling much more at ease in her position as Senior Case Manager at Aon.

 

What was a key learning that’s stuck with you?

This course taught me that only I can control what is in my ‘circle of influence’. Monica found this an important learning as it made her realise what is actually important as opposed to background noise that she shouldn’t let affect her.

 

What did you like about studying with IMNZ?

Monica found the relevant content and group work most helpful during the course. “It was great to be in a group with people from completely different roles yet dealing with the same core issues,” she says. She was able to learn from other people’s experiences as well as share her own and learn different ways to approach those situations. Monica found that she was often “cleaning up” others work and comments that Leadership Essentials encouraged her and equipped her with the tools to increase the productivity of the team rather than enabling poor performance.

Would you recommend this course to others?

IMNZ offered Monica the chance to gain confidence in her leadership abilities and for that reason, she would absolutely recommend this course to others in a similar position to herself. “Leadership Essentials is a great course for those wanting to move into a leadership role by providing insight, skills and tools to achieve your career goals” The time to upskills is now!
