Team Leadership

Published on

The team leader is the main link between the organization’s goals and the people who are responsible for the daily activities that make those goals a reality. Because of the necessary and integral role that this position plays, it is obvious that good team leaders are key to the success of any organization.

Many everyday decisions required within this role affect the revenue, productivity, service levels as well as attitudes and morale. With a role and function of this magnitude, it would seem logical that the process of becoming a team leader would require years of training. However, most team leaders have had little or no training in the required skills.More often than not, today’s teams leaders are men and women who have been promoted from being a superworker to being a team leader. However with the development of some key skills, the superworker can successfully transition into a super team leader!
Learn how to :

Understand the roles and function of a successful team leader
Maximize their power of influence to build a cohesive and productive team
Create clear results-focused action plans
Manage their time to ensure deadlines are met and projects are brought to a successful completion
