Small Team Leadership

Canberra, ACT

Subject: Leadership Development

Team leadership is not new or innate. New and existing team leaders often remain unsure of their approach to the daily encounters surrounding their leadership dilemmas. It is the close examination and analysis of the intricacies of team leadership that allow a better understanding of the skills required for effective delegation, coaching, team member support, and daily planning.

Team leadership is not new or innate. New and existing team leaders often remain unsure of their approach to the daily encounters surrounding their leadership dilemmas. It is the close examination and analysis of the intricacies of team leadership that allow a better understanding of the skills required for effective delegation, coaching, team member support, and daily planning.

This workshop provides you with common-sense skills to guide your team better. Being an effective team leader means understanding the team's needs, the expectations of your organisation, and at times, being the intermediary between the two. With the strategies to build a more cohesive team, both you, your organisation and your individual team members will benefit from this course.

Building confidence and motivation within a team requires knowledge. This workshop will teach you when to apply the specific styles of leadership according to the situation: when the level of staff skills improve; or when it is necessary to raise the self confidence of your team members; or even when to effectively apply your coaching strategies. But most of all, these two days will build YOUR confidence, skills, understanding and motivation as a team leader.

This two day workshop is a catalyst to help organisations achieve success, create enjoyable work environments, and allows greater understanding and skills when dealing with today's ad-hoc teams.

All participants receive a free copy of Ken Blanchard's informative book on situational leadership entitled "Leadership and the One Minute Manager"

Intended For

If you lead a team or you may have this opportunity in the near future, you will find this workshop extremely valuable. Skills obtained during these two days can be applicable to all areas within an organisation - since the nature of people remains the same anywhere. This workshop will give you an understanding of how to get the most out of yourself and your team.
