Managers are often expected to be leaders. They are required to make decisions impacting their teams, organisations and society on a daily basis. What can organisations do to assess and develop their managers’ decision making ability? This workshop will present a research-based framework linking affect, emotion, mood and personality with the decision-making competence and performance of managers. The workshop will practically demonstrate ways to use this framework to develop managers as leaders.

Prior to the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to take the Leadership Competence Indicator (LCI) assessment and receive complimentary personalised professional development reports at or shortly after the workshop. The assessments will provide a hands-on example of how to use this information in follow-up leadership developmental conversations with managers.
