Most of us have some grasp of what the word leadership means, and most probably some experience of what it feel like to be led, and yet few have a clear concept of what skills are needed to actually put leadership into practice. The good news is that leadership is a learnable skill. The first subject we will cover is the five phases a team goes through in its evolution, and we will follow this with the 13 leadership competencies (Linking Skills) as described by Margerison-McCann. These competencies will support you as a leader, covering personal, social and methodological skills.
Focus: The five team phases, their significance in team success and what the role of the leader is. Exploration of the 13 leadership skills and an assessment of your personal potential.
