The focus is specifically on the opportunities and challenges of leading teams, inspiring and enabling them to perform well and leadership tasks.
Delegates should leave a gap of at least four months between "Introduction to Managing Groups and Teams" and "Leading Successful Teams" to apply their learning in day-to-day roles.

Aim

This course aims to develop enhanced skills of team leadership using a range of models, metrics, and practical experience, action learning set. The emphasis throughout will be on feedback, helping others to perform better collectively, practical application, and leadership behaviours.

Structure

This workshop is based on a blended learning approach. Blended learning combines online educational materials with traditional instructor-led, virtual classroom methods. Through this teaching method, we will provide you with a rich and reflective learning experience that will enhance your development.

This course will follow a structure consisting of:

  • pre-session – to introduce you to some theories and models used in leadership and management, and applying them in your role
  • virtual session (replacing face to face) – focused on further developing skills and practice
  • consolidation – to internalise your knowledge and skills and inspire you to take action

An integral part of this course includes a 360° review. This process will start 6 weeks before the start of the virtual workshop.

Who should attend

This course is designed for people who manage a team of a reasonable size and/or whose role requires them to strongly influence the work and productivity of other people's teams, such as Departmental Operational Managers.  
Delegates should be reasonably confident in their ability to support and manage the performance of individuals.

Those who have no team or only manage a very small number are still encouraged to join the course but may have to vary their preparation and plan how to put into practice the tools and techniques in Leading Successful Teams. If you fall into this category, please contact one of the consultancy team to discuss your needs.
You will be expected to be conversant with MBTI types and take these under consideration when working with a team.
Some potential delegates may not have sufficient familiarity with MBTI and it may be possible to attend a short focussed workshop in advance of the programme. Please contact the LDC if you need to attend an MBTI workshop

Objectives

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Increase self-awareness and impact on others
  • Use a range of effective leadership practices
  • Adapt style and techniques to support the achievement of team tasks
  • Identify neglected leadership tasks and responsibilities and commit to action
  • Give and receive feedback effectively
