Leadership and Motivation (SCQF level 6)

In this course, we help people develop an introductory knowledge and understanding of leadership as a concept.

We know that motivation is crucial in creating consistently high performance across your team. This is why we also take a deep dive into the ties between leadership and motivation, supporting candidates as they discover how different leadership styles and skills can motivate others to become more effective.

This course is ideal for people who are interested in leadership development, and aspire to take on a leadership role in the future.

Completing this course also creates a strong foundation for people who want to take leadership and management courses at more advanced level.


Management: Developing Self-Management Skills (SCQF level 7)

We dive into helping candidates on this course recognise the importance of personal development. We also help them to get to grips with the self-development skills which will support their growth as they progress through their career.

As a result of this course, people become more self-aware in terms of their personal and career goals. They also gain insight into how these can be influenced by things like work-life balance, and their personal values and ethics.

We teach people practical ways to apply these new self-awareness skills, by preparing, implementing, and evaluating a personal development plan.

We emphasise that continuous professional development is a vital part to sparking and sustaining a successful managerial career.

If you have previous experience of working in a position with management responsibilities, or are returning to management after a break, this course could be ideal for you. And even if you don’t have prior management experience, it may still be suitable for you, if you aspire to take up a management role in the future.


Management: Organisational Leadership and Development (SCQF level 7)

In this course, we are laser-focused on teaching candidates how to analyse the processes and factors which contribute to the development of an organisational vision.

We also help people to understand how those processes and factors can influence the way a company can create its own leaders.

Offering candidates the opportunity to get under the skin of current thinking around organisational development, we demonstrate how to analyse different approaches to company-led leadership development.

If you work in a position with management responsibilities, are returning to a similar role after a break., or don’t happen to have current experience but have previously studied management practice, this course could be ideal for you.

This course also offers you a solid foundation for further study of management at SCQF level 8 or above.


Executive Diploma: Leading with Motivational Intelligence (MQ) the DNA of a Growth Mindset

In a world wrought with disruption, uncertainty and turbulence, a new level of leadership is required. Today, leaders must understand how to engage virtual teams, foster collaboration, partner with the organisation, and, most importantly, help people adapt and grow in a highly dynamic work environment.

To accomplish these mission-critical objectives, today’s leaders must possess a higher-level insight into human nature. They need to understand what holds people back, what slows the adoption of change and, exactly what they need to do as leaders to unshackle human potential.

The Leading with Motivational Intelligence course is the world’s first accredited Executive Diploma specifically designed to help progressive-minded leaders adapt to today’s dynamic business environment. Focusing on the issues and challenges created by disruption and turbulence, the course addresses topics ranging from leading/managing virtual teams to helping employees more readily orient to an everchanging world.

Beyond IQ and EQ, we have the MQ revolution.
