Effective Team Management
It is a statement of fact that a business with quality management will always have a competitive edge. This is true in good times as well as bad. While it is recognised that true team leadership is not something you can learn from one text book, there are things that can be done to bring out your better leadership qualities while assessing the traits that are better left alone!
We can achieve this by a one or two day Management Leadership Workshop using a behavioural analysis tool (one that fits in with the company's current usage - Myers Briggs, Belbin, SDI, etc) to identify the managers own preferred style. This will then be used in conjunction with a Leadership Style questionnaire to narrow down behaviour still further and unveil the true benefits of effective team work.
Once the journey of self-awareness has been completed, a number of different Leadership Models are discussed. The aim of this session is to provide managers with a number of options for them to think about when dealing with their co-workers. As we have already stated, there is no one true model for team leadership, but it is true to say that it can be viewed as situational - so knowledge of differing styles should equip managers with the confidence to face any situation.
This work is reinforced throughout the session with experiential teambuilding activities that highlight the behaviours exhibited within teams and provide real leadership opportunities for the managers to practice their new skills.
