In this session we’ll argue that the ability to lead and inspire others is not a wonderful gift that some lucky people are born with. Rather, it is the consistent, day to day application of a few simple, but very powerful principles. This module will examine those principles whilst looking at the difference between leadership and management, how your management style should not be fixed, but fluid – and how and when to change it, how different personality ‘types’ relate to one another in the team – and what to do about this and how to conduct a Team ‘M.O.T.’Bring this programme 'In-house’ keyboard_arrow_right
But what if we do everything right, as described above, and we still have some people in the team who are just impossible to manage?
