Team Leadership

In today’s business, the team leader is the “main link” between the company’s goals and the people who must accomplish those goals. Because of the functions of team leaders and the major role they play, it is obvious that good team leaders are the key to the success of any organization.

Many of the team leaders’ daily decisions affect profits, attitudes and morale. With a role and a function of this magnitude, it would seem logical that the process of becoming a team leader would require years of training. However, most team leaders have had little or no training in team leadership skills. Almost universally, today’s team leaders is made up of men and women who have been promoted from being a super worker to being a team leader.

The team leadership process is a structured, open-ended, pragmatic approach to developing team leaders. It is not a teaching program, but a developing program designed to engage team leaders in a process that results in personal and professional growth. The development of more effective team leaders has a direct correlation to an increase in the productivity and profits of a company.
