We are now accepting bookings for our September Diploma in High Performance Leadership, accredited at Level 8 by Technological University Dublin.

A recent survey by CIPD identified Leadership Development “as the skill area of greatest concern in relation to attracting and retaining employees.” Strong leadership boosts employee engagement, increases the organisation’s ability to deal with gaps in the talent pipeline, and reduces the headaches and costs associated with staff turnover.

Great leaders attract, hire, and inspire great people.

We are seeing significant ongoing demand for our Level 8 Diploma in High Performance Leadership, accredited by TUD. The programme is a comprehensive, results-driven programme which is extremely practical and addresses the day-to-day challenges and opportunities faced by managers. For further information or to book your place(s) contact our Senior Client Services Manager, Noelle Foley Coughlan, noelle@careerdecisions.ie or phone 01-6340077. This programme can also be delivered in-house within organisations.

Graduate Testimonials

“The Diploma in High Performance Leadership transformed my confidence and competence as a leader. When I started the programme, I was a Production Manager and I learned so much about myself and my team. I learned important skills on how to communicate and coach my team to get the best from them. The programme has helped me to build a motivated and strong team who are much more successful now at achieving their KPI’s. I have just been offered the role of General Manager and I believe this would not have happened without the benefit of the Diploma in High Performance Leadership.” General Manager, Manufacturing.

“I have come to appreciate how much my performance as a leader has improved during the last 8-10 months, and consequently, how much my team’s performance has improved, along with the impact this training course has had on my department’s performance through application of learning from the course.”
