Course Benefits

Many people are put into leadership positions because of their technical ability to do the job and not on their ability to lead. This course will provide an introduction to the skills required to lead and manage effectively, providing a sound footing to build on.

By developing leadership skills, delegates will be able to motivate the team to perform to a high standard, getting the balance right between quality and productivity. Having the right skills to lead means the leader can engage the group in the vision, build trust and competence and therefore, spend time further developing the skills of the team, and not constantly fire fighting to solve problems within the team.
