Leadership Challenges/Advanced Leadership & Teamwork

 

Training Description 

Most successful team-based organizations have been transformed from a traditional leadership environment to a collaborative, shared leadership environment where the importance of empowering team members is recognized. Such transformation poses challenges to leaders of all types of teams. In this course, leaders should be prepared to move outside their comfort zone, which on occasion can lead to discomfort. One goal is to face these discomforts, learn to identify them, and transform them into more beneficial management techniques to enhance successful leadership. Learning to use these new capabilities in a team environment will enhance a team leader’s ability to self-assess and to select the most effective management style for a specific situation.

The challenges of leadership in teams covered in this course are easy to apply in any management situation and will enable formation of teams that organize faster, think collaboratively, and are productive. They help create an environment where leaders can successfully support their teams in a competent professional atmosphere.
