Why attend this course? 

“Great leaders are born, not made”, say some. Course director Yanos Michopoulos (left) disagrees. Using his extensive experience of the energy industry, ranging from oil and gas through to renewables, he brings engaging insights into the art of leadership and the development of the skills that effective leaders need. Such skills, he argues, can be acquired and developed. The Leadership in Global Energy programme focuses on the transition from using hard skills – required by managers in planning, organising and operating – to soft skills – required by leaders for driving change, setting direction and inspiring high performance. Through personal and practical examples based on years of experience applying both hard and soft skills, Yanos provides a comprehensive understanding of how to be an effective leader, how to make better decisions, and how to build and motivate teams across functions and regions.
