At the end of the session delegates will learn that managers don’t necessarily need a powerful magnetic personality to effectively lead their people. What’s more important is an awareness of how leadership depends on the ability to motivate people. They will also learn that the majority of their decisions affect the people in their team.


This guide is designed for a manager or a facilitator to deliver a short workshop featuring videos from the Video Arts Management Essentials Series.


Each video comes with a series of activities around the following structure:

LOOK - watch the video and reflect on the content and message.

THINK - activities and questions linking the video to their own experience and workplace. REMEMBER - a summary of the key learning points.

Each section relating to the video will last around 15 minutes.

ACTION PLAN - At the end of the series of videos and activities delegates should be encouraged to share the most important actions they will take and record actions on their Personal Action Plan sheet.
