Why followers don't trust leaders?

Andy Edwards

LEADERS. Your followers don’t trust you… here are the six reasons why.

According to the respected website, hrnews.co.uk, 95% of leaders believe they are trusted by their followers… however, it seems only 16% of them truly are!

What are leaders doing so wrong?

For a start, they obviously do not realize there’s a problem (the ‘trust perception’ gap described above borders on the delusional)! And it’s very easy to blame followers who are sullen, stubborn, unproductive, and disloyal.

However, this course helps leaders understand how much THEIR behavior contributes to the negativity in their followers… and then helps them turn things around.

Many problems between leaders and followers are SYMPTOMS. Solve the underlying problems and the symptoms disappear. This course addresses those underlying issues.

Using six areas of leadership – each of which begins with the letter ‘C’, behavioral psychologist Andy Edwards identifies EXACTLY what a leader needs to do to create trusting, loyal, hardworking, and productive followers…

Followers who choose to follow YOU as their leader!

Presentation Skills

Barry Brophy

Presentations have a bad reputation. People don’t like giving them and audiences don’t like sitting through them, and many (if not most) presentations are dull and ineffective. But this makes no sense if you think about the many strengths of a presentation. They are live, personal, emotional, physical, anecdotal, three-dimensional, visual, interactive communications that allow you to really engage with your audience. The good news is you don’t have to master news skills to do this, just harness the conversational skills you have been fine-tuning since you were born. Through theory, examples, stories, conversations, videos and sample presentations, the course will tell you how to create a presentation you can deliver as fluently as you would converse with a friend.
