About the course

Leadership simply stated, entails fulfillment of responsibilities and achievement of organisational goals by managers in an organisation. The nature and complexities of tasks and responsibilities, and the challenge faced by modern organisations in the emerging business environment, managers must learn to work effectively with teams of colleagues and subordinates. They must do so both internally and externally and at top, middle and lower levels. Leadership and team building are intertwined as one integral focus of this programme. This programme will help you to develop your leadership potential and skills alongside skills in team building.

Key Topics

The programme contents are focused in two specific modules dealing with the theme of leadership and team building.

Module 1: Building Leadership Potential and Skills

This module will help participants to become aware of their own needs, perceptions and feelings and how the same affects or is affected by others’ needs, perceptions and feelings. Participants thus become aware about the antecedents and consequences of their interpersonal styles.

Individuals will learn to differentiate functions and responsibilities at different levels and in different situations internal or external to the organisation. Individual participants will diagnose their leadership styles and why the same is or is not appropriate in different situations. Managers will also learn about when to use which leadership style in decision making situation.

Module 2: Team Building

Leadership effectiveness is closely linked with team effectiveness. How a leader emerges in a work group will be the focus of this module. An observation of leadership behaviours is a vital source of information for selection of future leaders. What roles are played by members in team situation will be observed and identified. This module will also cover small group processes such as communication, conflict resolution and decision making in teams within organisations.

Who should attend

The Programme as such is useful for all managers with 5 ‐ 7 years of experience, irrespective of their functions, hierarchical position and business involvement ‐ be it in the private/public sector organisations, multinational companies or government organisations. We believe that an organisation will get an optimum return from this Programme by sponsoring a team of 2 ‐ 4 managers who have responsibility for managing a department, division, business group, or the entire organisation.
