Our team leadership training is skills based and practical

Team leadership training

Team leadership training gives new team leaders clear ideas on the key principles, and more experienced team leaders new ideas for effective performance of the role.

The Team Leader role is often the first step into managing people and it has many challenges. This workshop helps people who are new to the team leader role or who want to get ideas on how to perform the role more professionally.

The importance of team leadership

Team leadership training is essential in the modern organisation. The transition from team member to team leader can be described as follows. We go from someone who is good at their job and is thought to be good at their functional role; to someone who is responsible for other people and their functional roles. We are going from someone who is rewarded for their own efforts to someone who is, to a degree, rewarded for the efforts of others. Conceptually it can be seen as an entirely different job. Yes we know the functional part of the role, but we may have no experience of managing people to do that role.
This workshop covers the fundamental building blocks of being a team leader, within the context of being newly promoted.

Martins not only knows his topics but also is a master of presentation; keeping us focused on the issue. Break-away rooms is an excellent technique Martins uses in very appropriate moments to stimulate exchange and productive discussions. Very clearly structured presentations. Five stars, for sure!

The ITD approach

ITD’s approach to team leadership training is a blend of providing ideas, instruction and coaching. Participants reflect on their role and the ideas introduced, discussing these with other participants to explore how they might be introduced. They discuss and practice challenging situations for the team leader and look at any behavioural changes required.

Typical participant challenges

  • “I have been a team leader for some time, but have received no formal training.”
  • “I am new to the role and would like to get any ideas on how to be an excellent team leader.”
  • “There are a lot of challenges I was not expecting with being a team leader and I would like ideas on these.”
  • “In this role you get pressure from above and pressure from below, so I would like the team leadership training to give me new ideas and strategies for managing these.”

Tailoring this training to suit your needs

  1. We will discuss your definition and job description for the team leader role in your organisation, then explore what you would like the team leadership training to do.
  2. Once we have demonstrated an understanding of your learning needs for the team leaders we will develop an agenda for the training.
  3. We will also develop scenarios and case studies which relate closely to the participants’ experience and future challenges.
