Leading an effective and high performing team is exciting and provides a great deal of satisfaction. However, developing great teams does not happen overnight. They need a leader who has the right combination of skill and know-how.

The ability of people to simultaneously perform as individuals and collaboratively with their colleagues with effective teamwork is critical to the success of your group.

This practical and engaging course will equip you with all of the knowledge, skills, and ideas you need to build a high-performing, welcoming, and motivated team or repair a broken one!

The nature of teams and why they are important

Secrets to developing a great team culture

Culture is key! Understand how to develop a great team culture and why it is so important. Get it right, and you will be leading a great team!

How to develop an effective leadership style

All leaders and managers have their own unique style of management. In this session, you will identify your personal style, learn when it will work and when it won’t. Best of all, you will discover a little-known technique that you can apply successfully to any management situation.

Dealing with ‘difficult’ behaviours

Toxic, disruptive, and generally unacceptable behaviour has many negative impacts and can’t be allowed; full Stop! Yet, some leaders appear unwilling to take action. In this important session, we will examine the different types of ‘challenging’ behaviours, why they occur and the nine guaranteed steps to resolve the problem.
