Leadership is not always innate, but it is something that can be learned. This one-day workshop explores the different aspects, models and styles of leadership, with a specific focus on leadership issues within the Procurement function. The workshop gets participants to complete their own self-analysis of their leadership style, and considers how leadership plays a pivotal role within any organisation, and specifically within the procurement function itself.

Upon completion of this course, delegates will be equipped with:

  • An understanding of the importance of leadership within the procurement, and the similarities and differences in effective procurement leadership from that of other business functions
  • The ability to distinguish between management and leadership; and behavioural traits of successful leaders
  • A knowledge of the leadership role played by the Head of the Procurement function and other key procurement roles
  • An understanding of how to improve your effectiveness in delivering change, the leadership continuum, and various leadership styles and influencing strategies. Understand the strengths of your own leadership style, and how to build on your weaknesses
  • An understanding of “action-centred leadership”; “Situational leadership”; and the importance of stakeholder mapping.


    This course will equip you with practical leadership tools that can be applied across the organisation. Delegates who are involved in the leadership of the procurement function would benefit from this workshop. Some examples might include Category Managers, Strategic Sourcing teams, or Procurement and Vendor Management roles that manage complex procurement activities and projects, and are required to lead by example. 


    Please note: All courses include complimentary morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
