LEADERS AND LEADERSHIP
Leadership is everywhere, not just at the top. Every team leader, supervisor and manager is a leader, who influences and guides others towards a shared goal. Trainees will learn the core competencies of an effective leader, including emotional intelligence. There will be discussion of the importance of a leader’s personality and leadership style, the challenges of modern leadership, the impact of ethical leadership, and how to lead when one is not the boss. Case studies will be used throughout the training session.
Good leaders are good communicators. Their communication is a two-way process in which listening is central, and they create a positive work environment through their clearly articulated values. The self-motivated leader uses emotional intelligence, motivates others, and promotes collaboration. Case studies will be used to illustrate effective communication in the workplace.

HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE TEAM LEADER
Effective team leaders are models for their team members. They not only lead but also demonstrate responsibility, support for others, and commitment to the task at hand. Not only do team leaders show character and competence, but they also empower team members and promote team performance. They encourage synergy between different team members, which leads to enhancement of their skills and the spread of ideas and knowledge. The training session will be based on case studies.
