Product Description

Leadership & Teambuilding

Ten well led people will easily outperform thirty who are badly led. The route to management excellence is to get people not only to do things willingly, but to do them whilst giving the very peak of their performance, time… after time… after time. This requires leadership skills.

 

Demand for increased service and quality, coupled with cost containment and flatter structures have worked together to create a business environment where managing is no longer enough. Today’s high performance manager must also be a leader and a teambuilder. This course shows you how.

 

“Constantly able to relate it back to my work and team. The content was relevant and useful, good fun. Great team involvement, open forum style was great.” – HC, Relationship Team Manager, Fexco

 

Are you a manager or a leader? Here are the differences:

  • People manage things (computers, budgets, procedures), they lead people.
  • People work for a manager, they do their best for a leader.
  • Managers control, leaders empower.
  • Managers react, leaders act.
  • Managers go to work, leaders achieve their goals.

 

The programme is designed for middle-level managers who recognise that in order to get their team to ‘find another gear’ they, as managers, must do things differently.

 

Participants explore their own style and identify key areas for development. They learn a range of skills that make people passionate about their jobs. Skills which win their commitment, develop their confidence and create a positive effect on motivation and team performance.
