Leading Teams

Your Challenge:

"I have an overwhelmed team who are stressed by lack of time and resources."


All leaders reach a point when technical ability is less important than their skill in leading people. This is critical, especially as those leaders rise to manage teams. Their role evolves to empowering individuals, driving performance, and motivating teams.  


In this one-day Leading Teams workshop managers will identify business challenges and build leadership competencies. Make the distinction between leading people and managing performance. Understand the difference between work output and impact. Create strategies to maximize the performance of your team. Get rid of busy work and prioritize what's core to the business and critical to the future. Learn how to build networks to tap into resources needed to drive performance.


At the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • Manage and motivate teams to maximize performance.

  • Prioritize work and build networks that empower teams.

  • Increase their work effectiveness.

Professional skills gained:

  • Leading people

  • Managing performance

  • Prioritizing work

  • Managing stakeholders

Uncover the fundamentals that help leaders manage people and work.
