Most first-time managers or team leaders get the job because they have excelled in Management.
They get the job done, they can organize themselves, and the accepted norm is that the leadership part will come as they go. For some, it does.
But, in general, it is my experience that we can give new managers a serious leg-up if we introduce them to a basic set of tools and concepts as early in the new team leader’s role as possible.
And that is what this brief course is about. The elements are all part of my more comprehensive leadership development training – here, I have just picked the essential pieces.
In the course, we will cover the following:
- Understanding the importance of good relationships on the job
- Trust – the one must-understand critical skill for anyone working with others
- Psychological safety – the foundation for engagement, collaboration, and performance
- Stages of team development – how groups form and develop over time
- The Team V-High Performance model, your ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of leadership
- The ABC of leadership – how your actions, behaviour, and conversations define you as a leader
