Leadership and Teambuilding

This two-day workshop explores leadership styles and skills with the aim of encouraging participants to develop approaches that maximise the performance of their teams.


Peter Drucker once wrote:

'Leadership is not magnetic personality - that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not 'making friends and influencing people' - that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.'

The essence of Peter Drucker's statement is that leadership is about people, understanding what motivates them and encouraging them to work towards a higher goal. You can hardly do that if you are remote from them, either functionally because you stand at the head of the organisation or emotionally because you appear to possess some special powers that make you different from the rest of us.  Leadership is about understanding, motivating and growing people.

The very term 'leadership' implies movement from one place to another; a journey with a leader who will show you the way. A leader who wants others to follow needs to have a vision of where they are going and the ability to communicate that vision clearly, relentlessly and persuasively.


This two-day workshop aims to provide participants with the opportunity to explore leadership styles and skills with a view to developing approaches that help maximise the contribution of their teams.
