Managing teams as a team leader is often a difficult task, often having promoted over their former colleagues and often having to lead without authority. This two-day programme is a highly engaging and provocative practical development opportunity for Team Leaders and Supervisors. The course is designed to give participants a thorough understanding of what a Leader/Supervisor of a high performing team looks like, committing them to take actions in the workplace to achieve their full potential.

This isn’t a chalk-and-talk course, neither is it driven by theory and models. If a theory or model doesn’t work in practice or isn’t simple enough to apply in the ‘real-world’ we won’t be using it! This course is about practice and performance; participants are challenged to consider how they carry out their role, to become more self-aware and to ultimately do things better, for the good of their teams and the organisation they work for.

This course will cover:

  • Understanding the Team Leader/Supervisor’s Role
  • Successful Interpersonal Communication
  • Team building, people management and motivation
  • Enhancing team performance through coaching and development
  • Problem solving and dealing with difficult people

This course has been purpose designed for new, existing or aspiring Team Leaders who might have the following job titles:

  • Supervisor
  • Team Leader
  • Section Leader

By attending the courses delegates will be able to:

  • Adopt attitudes and to practice characteristics and behaviours akin to a high performing Team Leader
  • Create a SMART development plan that translates learnt skills and knowledge into action in the workplace
  • Develop a strong self-awareness so that they become reflective and understand how they must develop to reach their full potential
  • Take actions following the course to ensure their team receives effective communication, direction and support, in order that they too can perform to their maximum potential

The facilitator will coach and assist participants to develop a personal application and development plan to implement on their return to work. This should ideally be shared with others in the participant’s development i.e. the Line Manager (Senior), HR Manager etc.

For maximum impact, it is important for participants to receive support following the event, but also to be held to account for the actions they have committed to during the course.

In addition, participants will have the facilitator’s e-mail details and they will be available contact them for four weeks following a course – in this time participants may send any queries the have relating to the course and how they can put their learning into practice in the workplace.
