Leading Teams Successfully (December 17th-18th, 2019)


Tuesday and Wednesday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

How to create and lead winning teams

Leading teams is a complex and challenging task: leaders need to adapt to different personalities and communication styles, meet individual (and sometimes conflicting) needs, and create a motivating working atmosphere. A good knowledge about your own personality and your individual communication patterns is necessary in order to develop sustainable leadership qualities. Knowing about some principle team development aspects will show you how to create and lead winning teams.

  • tasks and characteristics of a leader
  • different leadership styles
  • delegating tasks successfully

Communication Skills for Leaders
