What’s covered

Discover what team leaders need to do (and not do) to gain and retain the trust and respect of their team members. In addition, learn how to boost your emotional intelligence and how EI assists in developing and maintaining relationships easy.

All leaders and managers have their own, unique style. In this session, you will identify your own style and 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.

This session will teach you what to focus on and how letting go of some bad habits will make you more productive, feel less pressured and more in control of your work and time.

Unless you have a 100% clear understanding of what you need to achieve (which is different to the tasks you regularly undertake), inevitably, you won’t entirely focus on the crucial few things that will make a difference. In this session, you will learn how to identify, focus and deliver on your five critical success factors.

Having that ‘difficult’, ‘awkward’ or ‘uncomfortable’ conversation with someone is often challenging. Gain clear insights into why we avoid having these conversations and how we can manage them in ways that deliver the outcomes we want and need.

In this session, you will learn about the ten things that great team builders do so you can start leading a highly effective and motivated team!

Ensuring that your team members meet expectations and standards is one of your basic responsibilities! In this session, gain the six-step process that will give you the tools you need to drive exceptional performance.

Learn the major causes of conflict, how to identify when a mild disagreement may escalate, and what you can do to effectively manage and resolve it. A vital leadership skills that you will learn and practice!

Toxic, disruptive and generally unacceptable behaviour just can’t be tolerated. In this important session, examine the different types of ‘challenging’ behaviours, why they occur and the nine guaranteed steps to completely resolve the problem.

At least once in your career, you will likely report to a more senior manager whose own ‘way of doing things’ or their lack of competence will get in the way of you doing your job effectively! Understand the four options available to you and the steps you can take to either work with (or maybe around) them.

Change is often inconvenient, often disruptive and nearly always resisted by at least some people. Yet, teams and organisations that don’t embrace change will just go backwards. In this session, learn the six principles that we must adopt to get organisational change to be accepted and implemented.

Understand the simple, sensible and workable guidelines that will help you work out what your relationship should be with your team members.

Motivated and engaged employees will usually deliver outstanding results. In this final session, you will learn what the critical success factors are to ensure that your team members feel engaged and satisfied! You will be surprised at how easy it is!
