Leadership Skills Made Easy – Building High Performing Teams (Buxton)

Duration: One Day Workshop

Key areas covered in this one-day workshop include:

“Leadership is the art of getting somebody else to do something you want done; because he or she want to do it” Dwight D. Eisenhower

As a business owner or frontline manager, it is important to strike a balance between the need to get things done and the need to keep employees motivated and happy. So, as well as knowing your team members on an individual basis, as well as how they interact with each other, you also need to determine the appropriate amount of direction and coaching that is needed in any given situation. Support means different things to different people in different situations.

Teamwork is about everyone working together to achieve a common goal. All team members are clear as to their objectives, how they will be measured and understand that their team is there to support them.

“You can take my factories, burn up my building, but give me my people and I’ll build the business right back again.” Henry Ford

Businesses do need to change in order to grow and expand. At what stage, as a business owner or frontline manager, do you need to train and delegate some of your workload? Continue to it all and you will crash and burn at some point, if your business is a success! Understanding when to stop doing something or delegate it, is a very critical stage in your business success. This workshop will help you to reflect on your leadership style and/or understand that you may need to employ or work with other people now or in the future. If you already have a team, this workshop will help you reflect on your strengths and the opportunities you could embrace.

What will we cover?

  • Balancing the needs of the team, the task, the person and the customer
  • The team development process
  • Teamwork visions for success
  • Exploring leadership styles
  • Time management reviewed
  • The role of the coach
  • Coaching for skills, development or performance?
  • Structure for effective coaching
  • Recruitment and Induction
  • Explore the power of empowerment and delegation
  • The benefits of reward and recognition
  • Needs assessment and training plans
  • Your personal action plans

You will also take away tools and templates to continue working on post the workshop, towards your goals.

If you’re looking to grow your business to take it to the next level or just starting out, can help you take advantage of new opportunities and make your ambitions a reality. We will also look at sources of investment available to you.

What will I get out of this workshop?

  • Review, refresh and challenge your leadership effectiveness.
  • Understand what tools and templates are at your fingertips.
  • Revisit and refresh your plans for the year ahead.
  • Network and share best practice.

If you can identify with some of these challenges then this workshop is for you. Whatever your experience, attending can educate, refresh and inspire you to take action back in your business. This workshop is thought provoking, fun and interactive, including a mixture of theory, presentations, discussions and practical hands-on exercises, giving delegates enhanced skills, knowledge and behaviours in the areas discussed.
