What impact does leadership style have on teams? What makes a high performing team? What role does diversity play in the team’s success?
The Leading and Developing Great Teams workshop will focus on how you lead yourself, lead with other individuals and leading with others in teams. You will learn about your leadership style, the characteristics of what makes an effective team and how to develop your next steps when working with your teams.
This workshop is deeply interactive, experiential and reflective. It is aimed at anyone who is responsible for other staff – their motivation, well-being, productivity and contribution to a collective responsibility or team.
