Leading Others - Why Character
and Competence Are So Important
presented by Paul Butler


This seminar presents a compelling new way of looking at the role of today’s leaders as one of support rather than one of control. Effective leaders ensure they manage themselves before they try to influence others. Great leaders are men and women of high character and high competence.

This program includes a thorough self-assessment to establish how well the participant presently manages themselves and influences others. Through real-life examples, powerful case studies, participative exercises and an action-orientated format, participants apply proven leadership principles and character-based methods to bring out the very best in the people they lead. Never before in the history of our working lives has the call for excellent leadership been as strong as it is now.

This seminar will significantly and sustainably help inspire present and future leaders to achieve excellent results, through people.

Three takeaways / learning objectives:

  1. Understand why we manage things and lead people;
  2. Understand that trust is the commodity leaders deal in and that trust = character (who you are) + competence (what you do); and
  3. Understand the 9 roots of effective leadership and see the practical application in the work you do everyday
