This leadership course enables your leaders to critically explore the key idea that the most important function of a leader is to help their people move through the stages of team development.

  • Develop communication skills
  • Generate a strategy for improvement of these key skills in each team member through coaching and mentoring 
Training Methodology
The seminar is based on a combination of interactive activities - group and individual exercises, case studies, and discussions - along with formal delivery of the latest theory and thinking.
The environment will be a supportive one in which individuals with varying degrees of experience will be encouraged to share the approaches they currently use as well as try out new ones that they encounter on the seminar. The seminar leader will be on hand to answer any questions a delegate may have and to act as a facilitator for building and applying new approaches. We aim for this to be an enjoyable as well as a learning experience and feel that the mix of style and learning techniques will prove valuable to those that attend.
