As a leader you know all about the work that gets done on your team – that is probably why you are the team leader.
But knowing the job does not guarantee followership – and as you may already know, a leader without followers is just a guy out for a walk.
So how do we achieve follower ship?
There are three essential instruments you need to master.
As you work you way through the course you will be asked to reflect on your own role and leadership.
Most of these questions are built into the course units and will pop up as you go along. You will receive a summary of all your answers by email once you have completed the full course.
But there is also a workbook that you can download and print out and have next to you so that you can capture some of your thoughts and reflections for later use as well.
You will find the workbook here: Development plan
