In What is leadership? and Leadership styles we explore the nature of leadership and look at ways in which people can act as leaders. In particular, we suggest that leadership involves using a range of skills and that it requires certain personal characteristics. We also suggest that you can lead a team in different ways. In particular, you can decide how much to involve them in decision-making and how tasks or person focused you need to be. Finally, we suggest that you remain accountable for the team�s performance, no matter how much you allow them to make decisions. In this session we bring these different ideas together by looking at the role of the team leader and what it means for you. In particular, we see how important it is for you to gain the respect and trust of your team if you are to lead them effectively. We also see what you have to do to earn this respect and trust.
This series, through a range of exercises, case studies and information, considers the role of the team leader and how to get respect and trust to enable an individual to lead a team effectively.
It elicits information from the team leader through case studies, essays and information to help develop personal individual goals to give purpose, direction and ensure achievement at work.
It also considers personal development and how this can be used to motivate and improve own and others performance.
