Building and Leading High Performing Teams

Overview

This course takes a comprehensive look at the leadership styles, leading and motivating employees, and developing high performance teams. Based on the principle that no leadership behaviour is suitable for all situations, the highly interactive programme is designed to provide participants with an insight into their current behavioural traits, preferred leadership styles and the ways in which they can adapt these to become more effective leaders. Gaining immediate feedback from fellow delegates, they explore the characteristics of a good manager and leader, as well as becoming more aware of the differences that may exist between their own motivations and those of their team members. This will allow them to understand how they can better motivate others, both as individuals and as teams, in a way that enhances overall performance.

 

All participants will practice and solidify their leadership development and team building skills directly by taking part in an experiential exercise where they are required to choose a leader, work as a team, make decisions, delegate tasks, assign roles & responsibilities and assess their own and others' ability to successfully lead. The course will help delegates to understand how team members can collaborate and harness their individual strengths and what managers can do to help this process along.
