DESCRIPTION

Over recent years, ways of working within many organisations have changed dramatically. Rather than working in distinct divisions or units, much work is be carried out by multi - disciplinary teams selected on a project by project basis on the grounds of expertise and skills most suited for the job.

This change in work methods has major implications for the leadership role. Project team leaders are be required to manage and lead changing teams with diverse backgrounds, experience and expectations. They are required to inspire team members toward the achievement of project goals in a manner that is more facilitative than directive, fostering the concepts of consultation, team member self management and accountability in the process.

OBJECTIVE

The aim of this two day workshop is to assist managers, team leaders and others responsible for leading people in projects in developing all the key skills for successful team leadership in a manner which although focused on outcomes is facilitative in approach and in keeping with the requirements of consultation, empowerment and team member self control.
