LARA Laser Leadership Learning Modules

Targeted leadership refresher and learning modules

LARA Laser Leadership Learning Modules. These are a series of individual short (10-15 page) leadership modules to be publish soon on Amazon Kindle. They are organised against the Leader of Others leadership competencies.

Like concentrated fruit juice – the water has been taken out to give you the heart of the subject. Where there are pithy additions you need for your study these are available from a dedicated online resource on a ‘just in time’ basis. This means you can concentrate on the essence of the leadership skills subject you are studying with the full confidence that your additional learning needs are catered for.

Each module is organised according to the LARA model – Learning for self-study and reference to external resource material; Applying by testing the competencies in the leadership role; Reflecting on successes using the Leadership Learning Log; Adopting and embedding by using the competencies in daily work. They can be used as a stand-alone learning resource or in collaboration with a Leadership Coach to facilitate and reinforce learning. The general learning aims for each module are described in the competency framework and key actions in the introduction. There is a Personal Development Plan (PDP) template at the end of each module.
