This course will be ideal for newly appointed Team Leaders, staff with potential for promotion to the role, or those wishing to refresh their skills.
Team members expect their team leader to be both resourceful and independent as well as demanding loyalty. The company expects the same so a lot is expected of a team leader! When things aren’t going well, a team leader must take responsibility, and when the team succeeds it is the team members that should get the praise. In spite of this good leaders will probably agree that being a leader in any sense can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling.
The course aims to give delegates an introduction to the basics of being a team leader whilst allowing them to develop their leadership skills and help them to lead their teams more effectively in the workplace. Delegates will learn team leading techniques and best practice that they can apply to their work situations.
