Delivery: Face 2 Face


Target Audience

Staff who are new to a team leader role or aspiring leaders  



Taking on a team leader role for the first time is an exciting time, but often also a challenging one, especially if you are managing those who were previously your colleagues or you are trying to establish your credibility with an established team, or you are being compared to the previous leader.  This one day workshop will give participants the opportunity to discuss the challenges they are facing in their new role (and in doing so realise these challenges are quite common and they are not alone), strengthen the basic leadership behaviours of direction and support and how to vary these depending on the development  needs of each team member and the  situation  and go away with a workable framework to develop a high performing and happy team.


Key Learnings

  • The qualities and skills of an effective team leader and knowing your own  unique combination of leadership strengths and current  development needs

  • Setting up the conditions for a happy and high performing team:  how to establish team norms, team values and team behaviours
  • Situational Leadership:  the basic leadership behaviours, when and how much  direction and support to give each team member
