Leeds International Film Festival presents Introduction To Leadership for Filmmakers Course, Leeds


Price: £25 full price, £15 reduced price



This one-day ScreenSkills course, in partnership with Leeds International Film Festival and TaylorKerek, aims to tackle the lack of structured leadership and management training within the film industry, where many new leaders are expected to ‘pick it up on the job’. Much of the available training is too generic for those in the film sector, without an understanding of the industry’s context and unique characteristics.

This one day practical leadership course, specifically for anyone in the film industry who is in any sort of leadership role or those would like to move into a more managerial position, will help you consider your leadership skills beforehand, take you through key skills and enrole you into a small group of peers to offer support afterwards.

Delegates will learn how to:
• Motivate and inspire
• Build work relationships and trust
• Identify and use different leadership styles in different contexts
• Identify when a particular style is working and when it is not
• Delegate effectively
• Inspire creativity
• Lead without having line management authority
• Identify characteristics of good leaders
• Ensure financial accountability
• Inspire collaboration
• Develop coaching skills where the leader acts as a supportive catalyst
• Develop effective time management and doing what is needed at the right time
