Smart human skills: Masterclasses for team leaders

Modern leaders have a lot on their plates.

A team leader has to inspire people towards collective, goal-centred action and positive results on time and budget, whilst managing the delicate task of nurturing healthy cultures and wellbeing. 

Some days, it can feel like an elephant-sized mission. 

Our masterclass series, One Bite at a Time, is designed for busy team leaders and managers who want regular doses of leadership know-how.

In each masterclass, you will gain:

  • a good understanding of the topic
  • practical tools and techniques that can be applied straight away, and
  • a greater sense of empowerment as a team leader or manager.

What makes these sessions really juicy is we go beyond the theory to explore and work through real scenarios and case studies. 

For those who want more tailored support with developing skills, confidence and culture, our certified coaches also offer one-on-one coaching and live workshops at our venue or yours.

      Remote is here to stay. It's flexible, agile, and it's becoming an expected part of the work landscape. But managing remote teams presents real challenges for team leaders. We have long ,mastered MS Teams and Zoom, but we are beginning to realise there's more to this.

      Topic: How to have difficult conversations with staff

      Wednesday 26 June 2024, 2pm-4.30pm on Zoom

      Leading people means having difficult conversations. It's challenging, it's confronting, our buttons get pushed so we naturally avoid it or put it off until the time is right. When we do pluck up the courage, we don't feel equipped.

      • The keys to successful communication in any situation
      • How to prepare for difficult conversations
      • Easy-to-use frameworks for having difficult conversations

      A thriving workplace is a place where people can be themselves, give their best effort, feel like they are contributing something of value and then leave work behind at the end of the day without feeling overwhelmed or stressed. Team Leaders play a crucial role in creating a culture or environment for this to occur. 

      In this masterclass, you will discover:

      • What culture is

      Client review

      "I just wanted to say thanks for your fantastic teaching. I took away so much, gaining confidence in my ability to be a leader and have since landed a new role. While previously I was managing a team of 3, I will now be responsible for leading a team of 10. I look forward to continuing to put my learnings into practice. Thanks."
