Lead a highly effective team by developing agility in your leadership style.

Effective team leadership is critical to the success of all organisations. The ability to lead a high performing team is also an essential leadership capability for up-and-coming management talent. How your team – and the individuals within that team – respond to your influence may be quite diverse.  One leadership style does not fit all team situations, and strong team leaders are adaptive to the needs of their team and its core objective. In a complex and digitally connected world, successful leaders need to be agile, adaptable, and have a clear understanding of their impact upon others. 
This course goes beyond best practice, equipping team leaders with the knowledge and tools to adapt your leadership style to meet the needs of the team.  After completing this course, you will be able to critically analyse your team dynamic, understand the different levers for influencing that dynamic, and formulate strategies for effective team leadership.
