Leading Teams in High Performance - Agilis

Leading Teams in High Performance


Participants will be exposed to a range of different approaches to leadership practice, allowing them to select those most suitable for their team’s requirements and the changing situations they together face. The opportunity to share experiences with fellow participants and experiment with new techniques in the safety of the training room will provide a broad spectrum of perspectives and new experiences that course participants will be able to learn from. Team leaders and managers who have shared and practised different ways of performing key leadership functions offer increased self-awareness, flexibility and confidence. They are better able to stand back from the everyday detail and focus on longer-term organisational and team needs, and can devote more time to investing in future team capabilities. This course will also benefit different team leaders working together on specific projects, with each being able to understand the other’s role and also seek to achieve better results for the benefit of the organisation.
